The Adobe Foundation creates positive change by supporting creative and digital literacy, social equity and opportunity, and active engagement in our communities.
Improving life in our communities through employee-led programs.
Our employees are a generous bunch. When they give money to eligible nonprofits and schools, we match their donations up to US$10,000 per year. We also donate $25 for every hour they volunteer.
Adobe Action Teams coordinate volunteer activities at more than two dozen Adobe locations. Our Create Change Days offer more ways for employees to help out in their local communities. And in 2020, our employees have given back at record levels as virtual volunteers.
Employee Community Fund (ECF)
Each year Adobe employees come together to choose causes that matter to them and invite local nonprofits to apply for grants. In 2019, our grant-makers awarded $4M to 200 nonprofits.
Pro Bono initiative
When employees volunteer their technology, design, and marketing skills to nonprofits, they help our communities and develop their own expertise and leadership. In 2019, they donated the equivalent of $1,278,000 in professional services.
Board Service program
We train employees to become effective members of boards of directors for community organizations, where they provide leadership and fundraising. In 2019, over 350 employees served on boards or completed our training program, resulting in $1.5M in grants to 208 charities.
Our employees help others master new career skills through Adobe Digital Academy as well as organizations promoting youth mentoring and college preparedness.
