Targeting Success: Archery Ireland receives generous Intel Foundation Matching Grant support.

Archery Ireland are delighted to announce that this year we have received €3,330 from the Intel Foundation, and extends a sincere thanks to the Intel employees who have volunteered for us during 2023! This support will help us support our members and allow us to allocate additional funds towards national level projects to grow the sport we love.

Over 300 community organisations and schools across Ireland have received grants totalling €1,411,369 from the Intel Ireland employee volunteer programme.

The Intel Ireland Matching Grant programme sees a grant paid by the Intel Foundation for every hour that an Intel employee volunteers at an approved organisation. In 2023 this marks the fifth consecutive year that Intel Ireland will be donating over €1 million to community organisations across Ireland. In 2023 Intel Ireland employees volunteered just over 160,000 hours that were eligible to be matched through this initiative.

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

Employees in Ireland make up just 5% of the overall Intel employee population but the Irish volunteering efforts account for 20% of Intel’s global grant amount. We would love to build on this success in 2024, and encourage any of our members who are employees of Intel to get involved with Archery Ireland, and log their volunteer hours for us.
