Whether our employees choose to support local communities through volunteer service or charitable donations, we’re able to significantly increase the impact of their generosity through our Matching Grant program.
By matching our employees’ donations of time, cash, or securities to eligible nonprofit organizations and schools, we’re able to boost the value of their individual contributions to up to $10,000 per calendar year. All current, full-time Adobe employees worldwide can apply for Matching Grants.
For every 20 hours of volunteer service an Adobe employee contributes to one or more eligible community organizations, we’ll offer a Matching Grant of $250, and for every eligible group volunteer project completed by a minimum of 10 Adobe employees, we’ll offer a Matching Grant of $1,000. In addition, we match employee donations of cash and securities at a 1:1 ratio.
In 2012 nearly 20 percent of Adobe employees participated in our Matching Grant program. We aim to increase participation by 20 percent and have an even greater impact in 2013.
Our employees can find additional information on how to participate in the program by visiting the Adobe CR Portal.
