TI Foundation

Matching Funds Programs 

For more than 40 years, the TI Foundation has been matching donations by employees and retirees to qualified education and arts and culture nonprofit organizations. The minimum donation matched is $25 (Note: the minimum amount has been reduced), up to a maximum of $10,000 for education and another $10,000 for the arts each year. 

Match your volunteer time with money 

TI employees and retirees in the U.S.. can also match the volunteer hours they give to charitable organizations with a monetary donation from the TI Foundation. By participating in the TI Foundation Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP), retirees can request a matching contribution from the TI Foundation of $125 to an eligible nonprofit organization for every 10 hours volunteered, up to $1,000 per year. Eligible organizations are nonprofit, charitable organizations and K-12 schools, colleges and universities in the U.S.. or its territories.  Note:  the minimum number of hours has been reduced to ten.
