Adobe’s core values: genuine, exceptional, innovative, involved

Since our founding in 1982, Adobe’s mission has been to change the world through experiences. We believe as strongly today as we did then that powerful experiences change the way we think, interact, work and improve the world around us. Equally enduring as our mission are Adobe’s core values: genuine, exceptional, innovative, involved. These truly guide our company — and our more than 20,000 global employees — in how we run our business, and in the positive impact we strive to make in the communities where we live and work.

most major tech companies in the bay area have an official team, including google, facebook & salesforce, so it's a big deal that adobe is joining the ranks and supporting this cause

Help us raise $100k to support HIV/AIDS awareness and showcase Adobe's commitment to serving the communities we value and the people we care about.

The best way for Adobe employees to donate is through our official team page, which will add you to our public donor list and generate the Adobe matching fund:
