Volunteer Request Program

Adobe's Volunteer Request Program provides the opportunity for K-12 schools and nonprofit organizations to request employee volunteer support for community activities. Appropriate community activities for consideration include those that can be completed in one day and do not require special skills.

Who may apply

Nonprofit organizations (501(c)(3) organizations) or K-12 schools located in San Jose/Silicon Valley, California, Seattle/King County, Washington, Newton, Massachusetts, or Ottawa, Ontario.

How to apply

  • Review the above information on who may apply to ensure your organization's eligibility.
  • Download and complete the application (PDF, 31K)
    You will need free Adobe® Reader® software to download the application.
  • Send the completed application, by mail or fax to Adobe's headquarters as instructed on the application.

Selection and notification process

Volunteer requests are reviewed by employee-run Adobe Action Committees. Because the committee can manage a limited number of volunteer requests, priority is given to those nonprofit organizations that can demonstrate the most significant impact on:

  • Providing services to reduce hunger and homelessness
  • Protecting the natural environment and improving public spaces for the enjoyment of the community
  • Improving access to electronic information for people with disabilities
  • Inspiring K-12 students to think creatively, communicate effectively, and work collaboratively using digital technology

Applications are reviewed quarterly. All applicants will be notified by e-mail, mail, or phone to confirm whether they have been selected for Adobe employee volunteer support by the notification date listed on the application. Notification dates are determined by the date when the application was submitted to Adobe.
