Matching Donation Programs
Intel has several matching donation programs for Intel blue badge employees. As an Intel benefit to retirees, official Intel retirees continue to be able to take advantage of these programs. While these matching programs have the same requirements and provide the same benefits for retirees, some programs differ in the process retirees use to submit a matching donation request. A 3rd party vendor administers most of these programs, but they are owned, reviewed and updated by Intel.
Below is a top-level summary of the each program with links providing a more complete description and any associated forms, as well as a chart that contains the key provisions and limits of each program. For a table that compares the main provisions of each program click here.

Intel Involved Matching Grant Program
This program matches the time that Intel employees and U.S. retirees spend volunteering in schools and non-profits with a cash donation. Donations amounts are based on the total hours submitted for an organization. A single matching grant “payout” check is mailed to qualifying organizations the following year. Click here for program details. Hours can be submitted at any point (but must occur before an announced January deadline) using this form.
Disaster Relief Matching Grant Program
Matching funds for selected major disasters are temporary matching funds. Typically Intel will match donations up to $500 per retiree for around six weeks after a major disaster. These are announced on the IRO home page, News Flash, or email with links that explain the terms, conditions and donation submission forms for the matching grant.
