Intel Employees and Intel Donate $30M in Honor of International Human Rights Day

In celebration of Intel’s values and to commemorate International Human Rights Day, we invited our employees to strengthen their communities and the world through charitable giving and community volunteerism. In return, all employee donations during the week beginning Dec. 7 were matched 2-to-1 by Intel through our Intel Foundation, and we offered coordinated volunteer opportunities for those wanting to give time as well as money. In one week, 4,500 donors (comprised of current and retired Intel employees) and the Intel Foundation contributed 12,000 donations to nearly 3,500 organizations, for a total amount of nearly $30 million in donations. We empowered our employees to make the most of their charitable giving, and their response was overwhelming. I am humbled by the spirit of philanthropy shown by our employees.
