FIRST INTEL INVOLVED PAYOUT CHECKS EXPECTED IN MAY
In 2016, 920 retirees got involved, contributing 115,000 volunteer hours! The first round of checks from the Intel Foundation should be ready in May. There are three rounds of payouts as organizations submit their paperwork and become eligible throughout the first half of the year. Complete eligibility requirements are found in the Intel Involved guidelines.
IRO will be posting updated Intel Involved payout reports on our website as they become available. Please do not make promises of matching grants to your organizations until you see it listed on the payout report. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PAYOUTS TO LOCAL CHAPTERS
Intel Involved payouts to local chapters of an eligible national organization vary, depending on the chartering EIN (Employee Identification Number/TaxID). See the FAQ for more details.
IS YOUR FAVORITE CAUSE REGISTERED IN THE BENEVITY PORTAL?
Intel’s Matching Gift Program, which is open to official US retirees, is accessed through the Benevity portal. Soon, Intel will be using Benevity to manage other program payouts as well. Why not get ahead of the game and make sure your favorite cause (nonprofit or school) is registered? See the Quick Reference Guide to find out how to nominate your cause for inclusion in the Matching Gift Program and other upcoming programs.
