Are you an Intel Retiree, or regular active, part-time, or flex-time employee? Intel will donate $10 for each hour you volunteer to the Washington County Master Gardener Association (and most non-profit 501(c)3s) under the Intel Involved Volunteer Matching Program. This includes educational hours, drive time, and any volunteer activity hours.
To find more information and how to report hours, log on to the Intel Retiree Organization website. Click on “Life after Intel” and select “Volunteering”. The page provides lots of information and a quick link to Benevity to report hours. If you haven’t signed up for IRO access, there is a link to do so on this page. There is also a webinar for using Benevity if you have any questions.
For reporting hours, the WCMGA tax ID (EIN) is 30-0064574. Also, if you donate money to WCMGA, Intel will match the donation up to certain limits; see the IRO website for more details. Note that the deadline is January 15 to report the previous year’s volunteer hours.
If you have questions after reviewing the Intel website, Marti Farris, Master Gardener, and participant in the Intel Involved Volunteer Matching Program is available for information. Marti can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
