We generate positive community impact, solve social challenges around the world, and create access to opportunity by mobilizing the resources of Synopsys, Inc. and The Synopsys Foundation, as well as our employees’ contributions of time, expertise, and charitable giving.

By working to deliver meaningful change, we bring our Smart Future strategy to the local level and live our commitments across three primary focus areas: education, community, and environment.

Synopsys for Good Focus Areas

We approach planning and decision making through an equity lens, centering the needs, perspectives, and lived experiences of the diverse communities we aim to serve.

Education | Synopsys


We work to close equity and achievement gaps and prepare students for the future of work and innovation. Focusing on K–12 (primary and secondary) education, we fund engaging, hands-on experiences that build problem-solving, design-thinking, and digital skills, and programs that create STEM curriculum and content oriented toward the future.

Community | Synopsys


We work in solidarity with community organizations to improve the quality of life for individuals and society. We fund organizations combating food insecurity and hunger, supporting inclusion and social justice, and using technology to create and scale solutions that address social challenges. These efforts are focused in the communities where we operate.

Environment | Synopsys


We work to mitigate climate change and its effects on people and the planet. We aim to support nonprofits that help protect ecosystems, facilitate the transition to clean energy in rural and low-income communities, and create experiences that cultivate the next generation of environmental stewards.

Delivering Positive Change

Our Synopsys for Good program is managed by our social impact team and executed in partnership with employee Community Leads and Community Involvement Teams around the world. We take a regional management approach to philanthropy and employee community engagement, and utilize a globally accessible online portal to manage volunteer projects, monetary and volunteer-time matching gifts, and employee giving campaigns.

Employee Community Engagement


Each year Synopsys employees world-wide participate in our “Season of Service”, a month-long volunteer program offering a variety of volunteer projects around the world, aligned with our Synopsys for Good focus areas. These projects not only support the communities in which we work and live, but they encourage community engagement across the organization.
