At the core of Intel Ireland is a passion for volunteering, community involvement and the environment. We are committed to making a positive impact throughout our local communities and to aiding charitable organisations.
Every year we select a charity for our employees to dedicate their combined efforts towards.
For 2022, we have selected Global Action Plan Ireland as our signature charity.
Global Action Plan is an environmental organisation that helps people and communities take practical actions, and make long-term changes in their everyday lives, to bring about a more sustainable world.
Throughout the year our employees will provide volunteer time and funds, raised through specially organised activities, to Global Action Plan.
Global Action Plan will also benefit from Intel’s unique Matching Grant Program, which motivates employees to engage in volunteerism by providing cash grants to the organisations where the employees volunteer their time. For every volunteer hour that is contributed to our signature charity, a ‘match’ (donation) of $10 will be paid to the charity by the Intel Foundation. As well as this, the organisation will benefit from another unique program, the ‘Matched Donation’ where the Intel Foundation match direct donations made by employees to the organisation.
Through the charity partnership in 2022, Intel Ireland are aiming to raise enough to funds to complete the following;
- Funds raised will go towards the planting of trees in Ireland and abroad. Global Action Plan works together with Hometree and Tree Nation to plant these trees. Intel Ireland aims to have at least 3,500 trees planted as a result of our support in 2022.
- Global Action Plan, in partnership with Young Ballymun, delivers the 'Nature Explorer for Toddlers and Afterschooler' programme for children living in emergency accommodation or in disadvantaged situations in the Ballymun community. Funds raised by Intel employees will be used by Global Action Plan to support the programme. Intel employees will also have the opportunity to volunteer their time to support the programme.
About Global Action Plan
Global Action Plan (GAP) supports people to live more sustainable lifestyles, by offering practical yet creative solutions that inspire people to act. Equally important, GAP programmes empower individuals to change their long-term consumption habits with sustainable living tools and programmes.
Global Action Plan works with community groups, schools and businesses all over Ireland. Through their evidence-based programmes, GAP promotes social inclusion and ensures that those who are most disadvantaged have the support and tools they need to participate in effective and creative climate action.
GAP Ireland is part of GAP International – a global network of organisations in 13 countries working together to achieve this mission. www.globalactionplan.ie
