Boulder, Colorado (PRESS RELEASE – August 15, 2011) – Red Earth Software, a leading email management solutions company, recently announced its donation of more than $100,000 in software to nonprofits throughout the United States and Canada. Working closely with TechSoup, a technology resource provider to nonprofits and non-governmental organizations, recipients include the American Red Cross, Medecins San Frontieres, the YWCA, and numerous food banks, schools, humane societies, and libraries.
“It is important for us to give back to the community through technology donations,” said Deborah Galea, co-founder and COO of Red Earth Software. “Many nonprofits do not have the resources to purchase software that can help them boost their IT performance and manage, secure and retain emails. We have made this possible through TechSoup and we strive to donate to at least five new nonprofits every month. We have worked with TechSoup for several years now and hope to continue to support these worthy organizations.”
”We’re honored to have Red Earth’s Policy Patrol as a long time donor on the TechSoup.org donation platform. We know the challenges for nonprofits that need to handle increasingly complicated compliance regulations, as well as avoiding risks around unwanted or inappropriate email, and Policy Patrol is a wonderful resource and solution donated to nonprofits so they can always be able to have a proven level of security and protection. It means a lot to have such an established and reputable company willing to help nonprofits be more secure both in their systems and their communications. We’re pleased to recognize their achievement as a donation partner on TechSoup as they cross the $100K donation mark,” said Gayle Carpentier, Chief Business Development Officer, TechSoup Global.
Red Earth Software specializes in email management software for companies of all sizes that use Microsoft Exchange Server. This comprehensive suite of Policy Patrol products assists Windows Administrators with implementation of email archiving, email disclaimers, email signatures and anti-spam software, which are important considerations for any organization that uses email daily.
Solomon Schechter’s School based in Albuquerque, New Mexico received the Policy Patrol donation in June: “Our inboxes were being flooded with spam when our IT manager suggested we get Policy Patrol Spam Filter for Exchange since he had heard good reviews about it and knew it was available through TechSoup for nonprofits,” said Kathryn Weil, head of Solomon Schechter’s School. “We love Policy Patrol since not only does it block spam, it allows us to control the level of spam blocking to suit our needs”.
The Lexington Children’s Theater in Lexington, Kentucky was Policy Patrol’s 170th donation: ”Policy Patrol has helped us tremendously by blocking over 3,000 spam mails each week for our 13 employees, allowing us to focus on our tasks instead of sifting through unwanted, and sometimes plainly offensive emails,” said Larry Snipes, producing director of Lexington Children’s Theater. “Without the Policy Patrol donation it would have been hard to find the funds for a solid anti-spam filtering solution for our Exchange Server.”
