Caring for our planet and inspiring the next generation

Intel hires students and graduates from Portland State University.

Intel Oregon provides support for education-related programs. In 2010, Intel invested $1.3 million in K-12 education in Oregon and $727,000 in higher education. This includes funds generated from the Intel Involved Matching Grants Program. When Intel employees volunteer in classrooms, they generate a $10 Intel Foundation match for every hour of volunteerism.

Intel Oregon continues to expand its solar investment. The photovoltaic arrays offset power consumed at the facility, and as a side benefit, provide covered parking for cars and electric vehicle charging stations.

With the Intel Foundation match, the total 2010 contribution to local charities through Intel's Community Giving campaign in association with United Way of the Columbia-Willamette was $6.8 million.

Intel Oregon has been recognized by the United Way with several awards, such as the Largest Total Employee Giving Campaign Award, the Largest Corporate Gift and Campaign Chair Award, and the Corporate Leadership Award.
