How it works
When a minimum of 20 hours has been accrued by Intel employees volunteering at a school or qualified non–profit organisation, a donation to match can be claimed from the Intel Foundation (Annual maximum grants are established. Schools can receive a maximum of $25,000 annually in volunteer matching grants; non-profits and NGOs, $10,000. per year). There is no maximum number of hours an employee may volunteer. Employees are encouraged to volunteer as a team or support an organization that is individually important to them.
Activities are eligible when employees’ gifts of time, labour and expertise are given to the non–profit organisation without compensation for their time or efforts. Eligible activities must provide the majority of the benefit to members of the community beyond other Intel employees or their families.
In other words:
Please note: volunteer activities at religious institutions, places of worship, missionary groups or funds will not qualify for a match unless the volunteering activity is part of a programme that is secular in nature and benefits a broad range of the community (e.g. homeless shelters and soup kitchens). The programme must have a formal, secular mission statement and its budget and staff must be separate from any affiliated religious institution. Additionally, the Intel grant must be designated to the 501(c)(3) secular programme.
