In support of the social justice movement, the Intel Foundation initiated the “Standing on the Sidelines is Not an Option” campaign supporting the National Urban League, the Center for Policing Equity, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and Amnesty International with a $500,000 employee donation match.
In 2020, the Intel Foundation donated $6 million towards COVID-19 Relief around the world through employee donation campaigns supporting programs focused on education, health, community development, and economic support for areas where the need is greatest.
More recently, the Intel Foundation provided aid for the victims of the Australian wildfires, the Taal Volcano in the Philippines and the Amphan and Nisarga cyclones in India through a series of spotlight donation campaigns.
Matching Employees' Generosity
In 2019, the Foundation donated $15.5 million by matching charitable donations of US Intel employees and retirees to eligible nonprofit organizations or schools as an effective way to support communities while reinforcing our employees’ generosity. In addition, the Foundation donated $10 million in volunteer matching grants. More information on our giving can be found in the 2019 CSR report.
We are committed to empowering girls and young women. She Will Connect US connects middle school girls to hands-on technology experiences, which inspire them to become innovators and encourage their interests in technology, engineering, and computer science. Our collective impact focuses on collaborations, programs, peer mentors, role models, and makes a clear connection between technology careers and real-world applications that drive positive social impact.
The Intel Foundation helped to create the Women in Science (WiSci) program, which engages high school-aged girls around STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) skills to foster a sense of creativity and innovation. This partnership utilizes the Intel® Employee Service Corps, our skills-based employee volunteering program, and has delivered high-quality training to WiSci participants since 2015.
