Intel Supports the Native American Advised Fund
Intel believes that investing in education, educators, and students means investing in the future of our community and industry. After all, the students being taught today are the innovators and change-makers of tomorrow, and the educators teaching them are the ones igniting their interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
That’s why Intel has contributed $20,000 to the Native American Advised Fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation this year. These funds will support STEM grants for K-12 educators and further the Fund’s purpose to enhance Native lifeways now and for future generations in New Mexico.
Intel has innovated and invested in New Mexico for more than40 years and is proud to help build pathways into STEM careers and support educators as they engage students in meaningful STEM experiences.
“We believe that the health of our community depends on an increasingly inclusive community of innovators prepared for the jobs of the future,” said Raquel Leon, Intel New Mexico Community Engagement Manager. “We’re excited to support the Native American Advised Fund, and we can’t wait to see the projects funded through this year’s grant cycle!”
Guided by their 2030 RISE Goals, Intel is working to pave pathways to the technology industry and encourage students to consider and pursue careers in STEM. In New Mexico, Intel has partnered with local colleges and universities to provide internship opportunities and has invested in grant giving initiatives like this one. Intel volunteers also donate their time with local schools and STEM-focused nonprofits.
