Most people know that Intel is a world leader in technology. But there is another side to this silicon innovation giant: In 2010, Intel employees volunteered at more than 550 organizations, earning $10 per hour for every hour volunteered in local schools and nonprofits through the company's matching grant program.

According to a news release, in 2010, 43 percent of Intel employees volunteered more than 150,000 hours, earning more than $1.2 million from the Intel foundation for local organizations.

As part of Arizona's Centennial celebration, Intel has committed to making "100 Acts of Kindness and Service" in the community. So the company is looking for nonprofits and schools that need groups of 10 volunteers or more.

If you are a 501c3 that can benefit from volunteers and a monetary match, contact Intel asks that you provide at least four weeks notice.
