Intel Ireland announces 2019 Signature Charities

Intel Ireland announces a charitable partnership with Saplings and Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue

At the core of Intel Ireland is a passion for volunteering and community involvement. We are committed to making a positive impact throughout the local community and aiding charitable organisations with their success.

Every year we select two charities for our employees to dedicate their combined efforts towards providing volunteer time and funds, raised through specially organised activities, to these chosen charities.

Employees will engage in and support a number of different activities and events throughout the year such as the annual Intel Charity Cycle, 5km Fun Run and Bake Sale to name a few. Both of the Signature Charities will also benefit from Intel’s unique initiative, the Matching Grants Program, which motivates employees to engage in volunteerism by providing cash grants to the organisations where the employees volunteer their time.

For 2019, we have selected Saplings and Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue as our signature charities.


About Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue
The purpose of the organisation is to provide a professional mountain rescue service for those who find themselves in need. This may include Mountain or Crag accidents or lost, overdue, or missing persons. In the last number of years the team responded to over 50 “call-outs” on average per annum. This does not include the behind the scenes work of training and committee meetings. Read more here.
