Coming Together + Supporting Our Communities in the Face of COVID-19
During this challenging time, our first priority is people – protecting and supporting our employees, their families and the communities where we all live and work. We know that many here in Silicon Valley and around the world are already facing huge challenges in meeting their basic needs.
In the face of this unfolding crisis, we believe that it is more critical than ever to come together – with other businesses as well as public and civic organizations to help those most in need. That’s why Adobe is proud to announce a $3 million commitment to trusted organizations that are providing vital assistance to our neighbors – locally and globally.
- Adobe is joining forces with other tech leaders in the Bay Area to support the COVID-19 Coronavirus Regional Response Fund of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, a trusted foundation that serves a network of local non-profits. Adobe’s $1 million donation will help provide low-income individuals and families in Santa Clara County through The Santa Clara County Homelessness Prevention System Financial Assistance Program with immediate financial assistance to help pay rent or meet other basic needs.
- We are also making a $1 million donation to the COVID-19 Fund of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the recognized global leader in providing rapid disaster relief and basic human and medical services. Adobe’s support will help aid vulnerable communities impacted by COVID-19 around the world.
- Our goal is to always empower our employees to make a positive difference in the world and we want to do so again now. Beginning March 23rd and through April 30th, we are committing $1 million to match – and double – employee donations to organizations that are providing direct COVID-19 relief efforts in the Bay Area and in the communities where we operate around the world.
To support our customer during this time, we are immediately implementing a number of customer-friendly programs intended to provide continued access to our products. Including helping educators facilitate distance learning through greater access to Adobe Creative Cloud desktop apps and free distance learning resources.
While the COVID-19 crisis is affecting everyone, we know that there are those who are facing more hardship than others. At Adobe, we are committed to supporting our neighbors locally and globally.
