Eight organisations across Co Louth have benefitted from Intel’s Matching Grant programme, sharing €43,069 as part of the Intel Ireland employee volunteer programme.

Louth organisations receiving an Intel Matching Grant are:

Abaile Autism Support Limited, Ardee St Mary’s GFC, Colaiste Ris, Dreadnots GFC, Glen Emmets GAA, Inniskeen Grattans Gaelic Football Club, Newtown Blues GFC and O’Raghallaigh’s GFC.

The local groups are amongst 305 community organisations and schools across Ireland to have received grants totalling €1,411,369.

The Intel Ireland Matching Grant programme sees a grant of $10 paid by the Intel Foundation for every hour that an Intel employee volunteers at an approved organisation. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Intel Ireland will be donating over €1m to community organisations across Ireland. In 2023 Intel Ireland employees volunteered just over 163,954 hours that were eligible to be matched through this initiative.

Since the inception of the Intel Ireland initiative, more than €12m has been donated to charities, schools, sports clubs, social initiatives, and community schemes across Ireland.

“At Intel Ireland, we are immensely proud of the impact our Matching Grant programme continues to make on communities across Ireland,” says Director of Public Affairs at Intel Ireland, Sarah Sexton. “By supporting a diverse range of organisations, from charities and schools to sports clubs and social initiatives, we are fulfilling our commitment to corporate social responsibility and making a tangible difference in people’s lives.

Throughout Intel’s 50-plus year history, volunteering has been encouraged and facilitated to make it as meaningful and impactful as possible with the Matching Grant programme now 15 years into its successful existence.
