Intel has for a long time recognised that enabling volunteering is an important part of creating goodwill amongst our employees and deeply embedded in our culture is a passion for community involvement, enabling a better future for all. 2012 was no different to previous years with well over 1,000,000 hours being volunteered by Intel employees worldwide – over 50,000 of those volunteer hours were recorded at the Intel campus in Leixlip.

The involvement of our employees in their local communities has made a huge impact on local organisations, clubs and schools. From planting trees in nearby schools to participating in the annual charity cycle, the list is endless.
In 2012 we supported two site signature charities, MS Ireland and Pieta House, and all funds raised from our site wide events, which amounted to over €53,000, were distributed equally amongst the two charities. Some of the events that employees got involved in during 2012 to support our signature charities included a Family Fun Day, a Cake Sale, Canal Walk, Annual Charity Cycle, Golf Classic and Charity Duck Race to name but a few.
In total during 2012 Intel employees volunteered a remarkable 53,504 with 44% of our employee population volunteering at least once during the year.
A large number of the hours volunteered by employees during 2012 are eligible to be matched through the Intel Matching Grants Program whereby $10 is donated for every one hour of volunteer time recorded at a registered non profit organisation or school.
The Matching Grants Program aims to recognise and motivate Intel employees to engage in outreach and volunteerism to make our communities a better place.
