Charity tracking system spreads to 23 counties

November 25, 2011

Associated Press

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) — An Internet system designed to track charitable giving in northwest Alabama is getting attention from other communities in the state.

The TimesDaily reports (http://bit.ly/ryEtky ) that the Charity Tracker system includes a searchable database for members and allows real-time communication, which can be useful during disasters.

Authorities say it also helps charities track those receiving help and whether individuals are seeking assistance from multiple agencies.

Mike Simon of Simon Solutions, which created the Charity Tracker system, said 23 Alabama counties are using Charity Tracker, and state government agencies have expressed an interest. He said the system is being used by more than 400 cities across the country.

Members of Loving the Shoals, a group of nonprofit organizations and government officials, met recently with Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle to demonstrate the system.
