Beltsville, MD (August 31st, 2020) – Alertus Technologies, a leader in emergency mass notification solutions, today announced its emergency preparedness grant offerings of up to $75,000 through a partnership with two major associations: the Northeast Colleges and Universities Association (NECUSA) and the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO).
“We are excited to start a new partnership with TAO and relaunch a successful grant program with NECUSA. It is clear how much both associations value each and every organization in their community,” said Ryan McGonigle, Director of Philanthropy at Alertus. “We are excited to partner with them and offer our Emergency Preparedness Grant to enhance safety across schools and non-profit communities.”
Over the past decade, Alertus has been dedicated to providing organizations — including schools, corporations, medical centers, and government facilities — with innovative mass notification solutions for rapid crisis communication. Through the Alertus Emergency Preparedness Grant program, under-resourced organizations will gain the hardware and software tools needed to effectively prepare for and respond to any crisis situation. This program is an extension of the Alertus Desktop Donation program, which to date has provided over 700 non-profit organizations across the world with the Alertus Desktop™ Notification tool.
“We are excited Alertus has chosen to partner with NECUSA for this amazing program offering. This clearly demonstrates Alertus’ commitment to the higher education community and to the students and employees who attend and work at these institutions,” said Chris Lloyd, President of NECUSA and Director, Office of Safety & Security at Cairn University. “We cannot thank Alertus enough for their commitment to NECUSA and the Higher Ed community as a whole.”
Skip Newberry, President and CEO of TAO, added, “Resiliency is a key focus for many TAO members, especially in 2020. Partnering with Alertus helps make our community more resilient by enabling TAO member companies to access an important emergency preparedness resource for free.”
To apply for the grant, applicants must be a registered non-profit organization or a government entity such as a school, library, or public agency. Priority will be given to high-risk and high-need organizations.
