U.S. employees and retirees can donate year-round to thousands of eligible charitable and education organizations (a cause) and double the impact of their contributions with Intel’s match – up to $10,000 per employee, per year ($5,000 for eligible charitable organizations and another $5,000 for eligible education organizations).  For complete details click here.

This program matches volunteer time that Intel employees and U.S. retirees spend volunteering in eligible schools and non-profits (a cause) with a cash donation. Matching Grant amounts are based on the total volunteer hours submitted for an eligible cause. Hours can be submitted at any point (but must occur before an announced January deadline).  For complete details click here.
