This blog was posted on behalf of Pia Wilson-Body. Pia is the President of the Intel Foundation. The Intel Foundation acts as a catalyst for change by investing in innovative STEM programs, providing disaster relief and support, and amplifying the investments of Intel employees across a broad spectrum of personal philanthropy and volunteering.
In 1988, a handful of Intel executives including our legendary co-founder Gordon Moore sat down to create a corporate foundation to formalize Intel’s philanthropic giving.
This week, we celebrate the 30thanniversary of the establishment of the Intel Foundation. I am so proud of what we have achieved working with our partners from around with the world, and with the support of Intel’s employees!
The timeline below provides a nice snapshot of our history through a few key milestones.
For years, the Intel Foundation has worked to increase opportunities in STEM fields, especially for girls and underrepresented populations. Last year we awarded grants to non-profit organizations in Arizona to deliver innovative STEM programs for middle school girls.
This week, we are announcing the next phase of grant making for this initiative. Our Request for Proposals is currently open to organizations that can offer programs in California, Oregon, Texas and Washington. For more information, please visit http://foundation.intel.com/rfp.
We will continue our commitment to acting as a catalyst for change in communities around the world.
