Discounts, social impact, and awards


Employee purchase program

The employee purchase program (EPP) lets Adobe employees purchase Adobe Software at a considerably discounted price. This is a benefit for all regular employees and retirees who are 50 years of age or older and have provided at least 15 years of service at Adobe.*

Products cannot be resold for profit or exchanged for goods or services. They can be gifted to friends and family or donated, up to annual limits. Visit the website (employees | retirees) or Inside Adobe (Employee Purchase Program) for more information.

Free Creative Cloud membership** for eligible retirees. Employees who retire with 15 years of service and are age 50 or older are eligible for a free Creative Cloud lifetime membership. Email and cc: at least one week before your last day at Adobe and include your anniversary date, last day of work and personal email address.

You can explore more employee discounts, such as Adobe-branded merchandise and Apple product discounts, on Inside Adobe.

** Employees who retire prior to January 1, 2023 are subject to the prior program rules requiring 25+ years of service plus age 50+ upon retirement.

Charitable giving benefits

Our global employees are a powerful force for creating change in our communities. Guided by our core beliefs, Adobe strives to change the world through the digital experience and through authentic community investments and programs. We recognize that this work often happens at the local level, where individuals take action in their own backyards.

To get started, visit Create Change on Inside Adobe, and familiarize yourself with the program guidelines, get involved with colleagues through Community Impact Teams, and support your nonprofits with Adobe product to best maximize your personal philanthropy.

Matching grants

Your charitable donations to eligible charities are matched 1:1, and time spent volunteering earns US$25 per hour to donate to an eligible charity of your choice, up to US$10,000 per year. The US$10,000 annual cap includes both 1:1 matches and volunteer hour grants. All regular Adobe employees worldwide can apply for a matching grant. Cash and security contributions from the payroll deduction program are also eligible for matching.

You can also refer nonprofits for Adobe product donations.

Retirees who have a minimum of 15 years of service at Adobe and who are age 50 or older may also request matching grants for their donations in June and December each year, up to US$5,000 annually. Retirees may review and submit this form to request matching grants and email the Employee Resource Center with questions.
