The Adobe Foundation is a private 501(c)(3) foundation created and funded by Adobe Systems Incorporated to leverage human, technological, and financial resources to drive social change and improve the communities in which we live and work.

The Adobe Foundation supports programs and organizations that help make our communities better, stronger, and more vibrant places to live, work, and do business.

The Adobe Foundation supports the arts and creativity as forces for social innovation and improving communities. We believe that art and design are tools to address social issues and can be vehicles for improving lives.

A vibrant arts scene fosters an atmosphere of creativity – the kind that brings new ideas into workplaces and classrooms, stimulating communities and preparing for tomorrow’s challenges. Our employees and the Adobe Foundation are proud of the positive impact we have by championing creative expression.”
