In 2018, the Intel Foundation celebrates its 30th anniversary. We are proud of our legacy of impact and the many ways we have served as a catalyst for change in communities around the world.
Innovation Skills For Women and Girls
The Intel Foundation helped to create the Women in Science (WiSci) program, which engages high school-aged girls around STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) skills to foster a sense of creativity and innovation. This partnership utilizes the Intel® Employee Service Corps, our skills-based employee volunteering program, and has delivered high-quality training to WiSci participants since 2015.
Matching Employees' Generosity
Over the last decade, the Intel Foundation has matched $140M in employee donations to non-profit and education organizations and has provided matching grants in support of the more than 10 million hours volunteered by employees.
Intel community engagement managers channel the passion of our employees into community-based efforts, such as the PC Pals and Maker Pals mentoring programs. In 2017, these two programs generated $850,000 for local schools in Folsom, California.
When natural disasters strike, Intel responds. The Intel Foundation takes a holistic approach to supporting communities during natural disasters, starting with providing immediate cash assistance from employee donations and matching funds. Through the Intel Involved program, employee volunteers help out in a variety of ways depending on the required needs on the ground.
After the immediate crisis has passed, the Intel Foundation works with partners to support rebuilding and reducing the risk and impact of future disasters. For example, after Hurricane Maria, the Intel® Employee Service Corps was invited to Puerto Rico by the government to assess their damaged communications infrastructure and recommend solutions to increase long-term resiliency.
Pushing the Boundaries of STEM
Since 1997, Intel has been the title sponsor of the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world's largest pre-college science competition. Every year, millions of young innovators compete to attend the global finals, where around 1,500 students compete for scholarships and prizes.
The Intel Foundation is extremely proud of our more than 20-year partnership with the Society for Science & the Public.
