Many institutions recognize the need to expand current emergency communications systems but have little or no budget. Alertus is here to help.

The Alertus Desktop Donation Initiative was launched several years ago by the founders of Alertus Technologies as a philanthropic effort to assist educational institutions with limited budgets. To date, the initiative has benefited hundreds of institutions, including Burke County Public Schools, the College of William and Mary, Louisiana State University, and Vanderbilt University. The donation provides an enterprise-wide perpetual license of Alertus Desktop Notification.

Who Can Qualify

Universities, colleges, K–12 districts, and certain nonprofit entities qualify. Corporations, healthcare institutions, and for-profit entities do not qualify in most cases. The intent of our grant initiative is to help organizations with severe budget challenges. If you are not sure whether you are a candidate for the initiative, we encourage you to submit the form below.


What You Get

Eligible institutions receive a perpetual enterprise license of Alertus Desktop Notification comprised of the core Alertus Server Software, Alertus Activation Console, and unlimited utilization of desktop notification client software (compatible with both PCs and Macs). Please note that this donation does not include enhanced product features that require additional support. Your desktop notification license allows you to deploy the software on all desktops and laptops within your facilities, managed or personally owned. The license never expires, and updates are released at no cost semi-annually.

I don’t know why any college or university wouldn’t use Alertus Desktop Notification. It’s great, and there are no strings attached. Go for it!
