Our philanthropic goals
Intel established the Intel Foundation in 1989 to improve the educational opportunities and quality of life for communities worldwide. Over the years, the foundation has helped fuel innovation in classrooms, empower women and underserved youth, and enable Intel employees to serve the needs of their communities.
By developing programs and providing funding for national and localized grants, the Intel Foundation advances math and science education while helping to build a workforce that represents the diversity around the world.
Please note the Intel Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant requests.
The Intel Foundation develops and funds a range of programs
that advance education and workforce diversity worldwide.
Promoting math and science education
Among its educational initiatives, the Intel Foundation sponsors the Intel Science Talent Search and Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Both of these programs support the nonprofit organization, Society for Science & the Public.
Intel also honors achievement close to home and abroad. The Intel Schools of Distinction Award honors U.S. schools that demonstrate 21st century teaching and learning environments, while the Intel+UC Berkeley Technology Entrepreneurship Challenge supports initiatives in developing countries.
Inspiring youth around the world
With programs geared towards youth in underserved communities, such as the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network and the Intel® Learn Program, the Intel Foundation fosters encouraging and stimulating environments for kids to help them build problem solving, collaboration, and technology skills.
Giving back to the community
Every year, the Intel Foundation contributes millions of dollars toward community programs, disaster relief efforts, education grants, and more. Visit our Community Giving page to see how Intel is helping make the world a better place.
