Five Wicklow organisations receive €18,932 as they share €1m from Intel
Five Wicklow organisations have received €18,932 as part of a scheme that saw them share €1m donated by Intel employees.
The money was released from Intel’s 2019 Matching Grant program which sees 278 community organisations and schools from across the country receive grants which total €1,026,895.
The five Wicklow organisations are:
- Kiltegan GAA Club
- Bray Emmets GAA Club
- Kilmacanogue GAA Club
- Hollywood Shamrocks GAA
- Blessington Community First Responder Unit
The Intel Involved Matching Grant Program encourages Intel employees to engage in outreach and volunteerism in their communities by supporting employees’ giving their time and talent to qualified non–profits organisations and schools.
For every hour that is volunteered by an Intel employee, a donation or “match” of €10 is paid from the Intel Foundation directly to the organisation.
In 2019 Intel employees volunteered just over 112,000 hours that were eligible to be matched through this initiative resulting in a payout of €1,026,895 for 278 recipient organisations who are spread across 23 different counties.
