At Adobe, we want to empower people to use our innovative technologies and solutions in ways that have a positive impact on society. Since its inception, Adobe has helped revolutionize the way people engage with ideas and information. Our technologies have fostered creativity and collaboration, streamlined work processes, reduced paper use in the workplace, helped secure sensitive information, enabled high-impact online learning, and much more.
Recognizing that our software solutions are used by the community for creative expression and social advocacy, Adobe provides donations of our latest version software to over 15,000 primary and secondary schools and qualified nonprofits each year. Adobe's Software Donation Program allows schools and nonprofits to request a maximum of four individually titled software products or one bundled software package per year. Donations are made to North American and international organizations.
In the United States, K-12 schools and 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations are eligible to apply, In Canada, primary and secondary schools and qualified non-profit organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
As of June 1, 2006, Adobe's North American Software Donation Program is managed in partnership with TechSoup and the education and international software donation programs are managed in partnership with Good360.
If your organization is a K–12 school with an NCES number in the U.S. or a primary or secondary school in Canada, visit Good360 to review the most up-to-date program guidelines and restrictions and to apply for a donation.
Because Adobe has a limited amount of software to donate, priority is given to nonprofit organizations, schools, and programs that are most closely aligned with Adobe's corporate giving focus areas.
Applications are processed by our distribution partners, Good360 and TechSoup. All applicants will be notified by our distribution partners to confirm whether they have been selected to receive a donation within one month of submitting an application. Adobe offices are unable to process software donation applications.
Adobe reserves the right to the interpretation, application, and administration of the Software Donation Program.
