From The Board – Barb Frank, President
Help is needed for victims of the recent storms in the Southeast and Intel is prepared to match donations made by Intel retirees if received by May 20th.
The Intel Foundation is offering a matching program for relief efforts for the storms that have hit the southeast US. All documentation of personal donations must be received by the foundation by May 20, 2011 in order to be matched. Gifts will be matched up to $2,000 per retiree. Complete instructions for donating are available on our web homepage at http://www.intelretiree.com/.
Your Intel Retiree Organization board continues to work with Intel to include retirees on Great Place to Work (GPTW) programs. Effective immediately, Live Homework Help which is an online interactive tutoring program for children and grandchildren of employees, is also available to retirees’ children and grandchildren. The program can be accessed at http://www.tutor.com/intelmyben (password: tutorme). Tutoring is available for students K-12, Col lege and Adult Learners.

$90,000 given towards Japan Earthquake Relief
Intel has reported that $45,000 in donations to the Japan Earthquake Fund were received from Intel retirees. These dollars were matched by the Intel Foundation for a total of $90,000. A total of $3.06 million dollars was contributed by Intel employees, retirees and the Intel Foundation.
Reminder: There is no deadline for educational donations. Intel retirees fully participate in the on-going Intel Matching Gifts to Education Program. Unlike relief fund donations, the Intel matching funds go to the same educational organization as your gift. Use the following link for a complete description of the program, on-line donation forms, when matching checks are sent, and a history of your reported educational contributions, https://www.easymatch.com/intel/.
Checks for your volunteer 2010 hours will be going to your charities at the end of May.

Intel retirees are a diverse and interesting group. The Intel Retiree Organization works with retirees to create articles showing how we are working in the community, where our next career has taken us, what we are interested in since retirement, and providing opportunities to engage with other retirees.
