What’s New: In celebration of Intel’s 50th anniversary, the company set a goal for 50,000 employees to volunteer 1 million hours around the world in 2018. Intel announced today that it exceeded that goal with more than 63,000 employees – nearly 60 percent of its total employee population – giving more than 1 million hours of their time in 28 countries to date.

“Volunteering has been a part of Intel’s DNA for more than two decades. Engaging and mobilizing more than half of our employees to volunteer was no easy feat. Volunteer champions worked diligently with local nonprofits and schools to create meaningful volunteer experiences that ranged from long-term, skill-based volunteering in human resources, legal, finance and technology, to on-site volunteer events for our workers with limited time but a lot of heart. Managers embraced this cause, rallying their teams and role modeling volunteerism. I also want to recognize Global Public Affairs and the Intel Foundation for the tireless program management to make our 50th anniversary volunteer challenge one for the record books.”
–Ann Kelleher, Intel senior vice president, Manufacturing and Operations

Why It Matters: Intel Involved, Intel’s corporate volunteer program, began in 1995. Since then, employees have generously volunteered with causes such as education, community development and tackling environmental challenges. Over the past decade, Intel employees have volunteered more than 10 million hours globally.

This year resulted in more volunteers in a single year than ever before, a 59 percent increase compared with 2017. Volunteers gave back at a wide range of nonprofit organizations, including more than 210,000 hours to schools and educational institutions, nearly 110,000 hours to human services, and more than 41,000 hours to youth development programs. The numbers will continue to grow as employees give back through the remainder of the year.

There’s More: Through the Intel Involved Matching Grant Program, qualified schools and nonprofit organizations are eligible for Volunteer Matching Grants from the Intel Foundation for every hour volunteered. Intel expects this will result in nearly $12 million to over 4,000 schools and charitable organizations around the world.
