Intel Volunteers Beautify Six Schools in Large Single-Day Effort
Intel has a long history of service and partnership with the Hillsboro School District. Through its volunteer matching grant program, in which non-profit organizations are eligible to receive $10 per hour of Intel employee volunteer time provided a 20-hour threshold is met, the company has donated millions of dollars to Hillsboro schools. In 2015, Intel employees and retirees volunteer nearly 20,000 hours at Hillsboro schools, clubs, and athletic programs, which resulted in $194,000 in matching grants.
