How to get Creative Cloud discs/DVDs/CDs for your church or non-profit

Posted on October 03, 2013 by Dale Smith | 0 Comments

Adobe’s Creative Cloud is so great because it gives your church or non-profit organization access to every Adobe product at an affordable price! However, we’ve consistently been asked questions about this product and have noticed a trend that we’ll be attempting to address in this blog post. (As a side note, remember that Adobe has since discontinued updating their line of Creative Suite 6 (CS6) products and have pushed all of the newest versions onto the Creative Cloud.)

Here are some common scenarios that we’re attempting to address:

  1. Non-profits with slow or inconsistent Internet speeds need to download multi-gigabyte (3 GB+) to get started.
  2. Non-profits that have access to a computer with a high speed Internet connection, but would also like to install the Creative Cloud software on a different machine that may not have the same Internet connectivity
  3. Individuals that want to have backup copies of CC installers, so they don’t have to re-download everything in the event of reinstallation, installing on other machines, etc.
  4. People that have difficulty interacting with the Creative Cloud Desktop application manager or want to download their tools without using it.

If your non-profit or church falls into any one of these groups, then we have the solution for you!

To solve issues 2, 3, and 4, all you need to do is copy this link: and replace the word ‘Illustrator’ with the program you’re looking for. For example, if you wanted Photoshop, you’d replace “Illustrator” with “Photoshop.” If you wanted Adobe Acrobat, you’d replace the word “Illustrator” with “Acrobat.” From there, you just click the “Download trial” button. Keep in mind that Adobe recommends that you turn off any restrictions that your browser may have on your surfing habits; this means that you should temporarily turn off your cookie blockers, firewalls, and various anti-virus/anti-malware software.

If you would like to order an Adobe Creative Cloud CD/DVD/disc from Adobe, all you need to do is have an existing Cloud membership. Then you can simply contact them (via live chat), explain your situation, and they’ll be more than happy to ship you a CD. Once you install the programs from the disc onto your computer, you’ll need to have internet connection for about five minutes so the program can validate your membership. And that’s it!

Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams is available for churches and non-profits at a discounted rate.
