Intel announced March 26 the Intel Foundation will provide $4 million to support coronavirus relief efforts in communities where the company has a significant presence. In Arizona, that will translate to a $1 million donation to the Arizona Community Foundation Arizona COVID-19 Community Response Fund.

"We know how important it is for companies to support the community organizations and leaders who are working diligently to respond to the coronavirus pandemic here in Arizona," Intel Communications Manager Linda Qian said in an email.


Additionally, Qian said that for Intel's 12,000 Arizona employees, the Intel Foundation is establishing a special donation matching campaign to amplify their contributions. Intel employees who donate to the Arizona Community Foundation's Arizona COVID-19 Community Response Fund, Valley of the Sun United Way's United for the Valley COVID-19 Fund, For Our City – Chandler, and other designated organizations around the world will have their donations matched up to a total of $2 million.

"We’re also happy to share that 75,000 surgical masks are leaving our Hillsboro, Oregon facility today to support Arizona health care workers on the front lines," Qian said. "The State of Arizona, under the Governor’s leadership, will be distributing these to those most in need. We know it will take all of us working together to make sure our community emerges from this stronger than ever."
