Intel’s new Employee Matching Gifts Program has launched—offering you significantly more flexibility than ever before in how you can donate to your preferred charitable organization.
Any donation made to an eligible charitable organization or school after January 1, 2016 can receive a matching gift from the Intel Foundation. And now, employees and retirees in the U.S. can donate year-round.
Your donation can be matched two ways. You can make a one-time or recurring donation to eligible organizations using a credit card or PayPal, and these donations will automatically generate the Intel Foundation match—no request for the match or receipt necessary. Alternatively, you can request a match in the portal for a donation you made directly to an eligible organization using cash, check, stock, etc. A valid receipt** from the recipient organization is required to submit a request.
To participate in the new program contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate you are a U.S. retiree and provide your WWID to begin the process of creating an account. Benevity will verify your WWID, then will reply with a temporary password, the URL to log in and other instructions.
Once you have created a Benevity account, use this URL: https://intel.benevity.org to Login to your account to utilize Intel’s Matching Gift program.
** Receipts need to include:
- A statement that no goods or services were provided in return for the donation, or the Fair Market Value (FMV) of any benefits received and the tax deductible amount of the donation. Only the tax deductible amount of the donation is eligible for the match.
- Donor name
- Receiving organization (501c3 and/or School) name
- Donation amount (in USD)
- Date of donation
Please don’t submit copies of check and PayPal receipts as your receipt.
Combined receipts must be for a single cause and be within a single calendar year.
When nominating a cause (charity or school) a match request cannot be submitted until the nomination is approved.
Status updates will be sent to the requestor.
