Intel Involved and Skills-Based Volunteering

 

Intel Involved and Skills-Based Volunteering

The Intel global volunteer program—Intel Involved—
identifies a variety of opportunities for Intel employees,
either as individual volunteers or in teams, to volunteer
in the communities where they live and work. Through
this program, Intel employees volunteer their time and
talent to build strong communities that are inclusive,
economically empowered, and environmentally
sustainable. In Ireland, more than 40% of employees
volunteer their time at least once a year. From
participating in classroom activities to providing IT
expertise, the impact of employee volunteer efforts are
felt across the country. Over the last 5 years, Intel
Ireland employees have volunteered over 266,000
hours. To find out more about Intel’s volunteering
efforts click here.

Supporting Charities

 

Supporting Charities

Each year Intel Ireland selects two signature charities in
order to give employees the opportunity to dedicate
their efforts towards providing volunteer time and
funds, raised through specially organised activities, to
these chosen organisations. Last year, Irish Hospices
and the ISPCC, were selected and employees
volunteered over 50,000 hours of their time and raised
over €62,000 for these charities. For 2014, the
selected charities are the Jack & Jill Foundation and Irish
Autism Action

The Remarkable Rye River

 

The Remarkable Rye River

Since first establishing operations at the Leixlip campus
in 1989 Intel has been aware of the rich biodiversity
contained within parts of our site and also the
significance of the Rye water and its Valley. Intel has a
long standing commitment to the monitoring of the
river through the funding of detailed annual reports
that provide extensive resources on features of the
Rye. This detailed monitoring of the River Rye, one of
the longest running continuous freshwater assessments
of salmonid populations, reached an important
milestone in 2012 as it was the 20th year of reporting.
To mark this occasion, and to share the wealth of
unique information obtained through many years of
monitoring, Intel  commissioned a special publication,
The Remarkable River Rye. Download the full
publication here.

Matching Grants

 

Matching Grants

The Intel Involved Matching Grant program awards cash
grants to schools, charities and non-profit organisations
where Intel employees volunteer their time. The grants
are accrued based on the number of hours that are
volunteered by Intel employees at organisations which
are registered as part of the program. For every one
hour that an employee volunteers the Intel Foundation
grants $10 to their school, charity or non-profit
organisation. Since 2008, when the program was
expanded to include charities and non-profit
organisations in addition to schools, the Intel
Foundation has donated more than $2.2 million to Irish
organisations.  Click here to find out more.
