Alpha Software donates over $240,000 to

Last week I told you about our donation to TechSoup, and the free webinar we're hosting with them next Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 11 a.m. Pacific time. Well, the press release officially hit the wire today. Read on below for more information.

Alpha Software Donates over $240,000 to

Alpha donated more than 600 copies of Alpha Five through TechSoup’s philanthropy service to help nonprofit organizations build desktop and AJAX web applications rapidly

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Alpha Software has directly supported the database needs of over 600 nonprofit organizations by its donation of over 600 copies of Alpha Five through, amounting to more than $240,000. Organizations benefiting from this donation effort work for a range of causes, include cultural awareness, community service, juvenile delinquency prevention, community health planning, convict rehabilitation, low-income housing, and more.

These organizations now have access to an easy-to-use, world-class database so they can build custom applications to better and more effectively manage their agencies. This is further evidence of Alpha’s commitment to worthy causes. Alpha recently introduced a new discounted pricing model for schools and students that drastically reduced the cost of Alpha Five.

“We appreciate the men and women who toil to improve our communities and help those who need help most,” says Richard Rabins, Co-Chairman of Alpha Software. “TechSoup Stock is a great way for any company to share what we know and do best. In our case, that’s building better database tools. When I think about the fact that Alpha Five will be powering some truly socially responsible applications, it strengthens my sense that our technology is doing something meaningful in the world. I encourage all my colleagues throughout the information technology industry to seriously consider supporting TechSoup.”

To get these organizations up and running as quickly as possible, TechSoup is partnering with Alpha Software to offer a free webinar on building Web and desktop databases applications with Alpha Five on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 11 a.m. Pacific time. Developers can sign up for the one-hour presentation by Alpha developers Chris Peters and Steve Workings by emailing marketing with the words "non profit" in the subject line.

TechSoup is powered by TechSoup Global one of the country’s oldest and largest nonprofit technology assistance agencies. The organization offers nonprofits in over 20 countries a one-stop resource for technology needs by providing free information, resources, and support. In addition to online information and resources, TechSoup Stock offers nonprofits donated and discounted technology products provided by corporate and nonprofit technology partners.
