SofterWare Inc., a leading provider of software products for non-profits and educational organizations, is pleased to announce the formalization of their efforts to support local non-profits via donations and by supporting employee volunteerism.

The SofterWare Gives Back program includes the following:
Corporate Donation Program – Last year, SofterWare donated approximately $93,000 to 13 different Pennsylvania non-profits in support of their educational missions. Recipients of these donations were nominated and voted on by SofterWare employees.
Employee Volunteer Program – SofterWare encourages employee involvement with non-profits, and SofterWare staff have provided their time and expertise doing everything from helping to build websites to leading fundraising initiatives for numerous organizations. In addition, SofterWare employees have organized several company-wide initiatives, including blood drives and teams for numerous walks and races.
Matching Gifts – This new program has already generated $3250 in SofterWare-matched donations for causes that are important to our employees.
Youth Team Sponsorship – So far, four local youth teams nominated by employees have received SofterWare sponsorship.
