Cooperstock Software develops technology to help the charitable sector. From its Canadian home base it produces software used throughout Canada, the U.S.A. and the rest of the world. Cooperstock Software * - the legal name of the business - owns and operates the Software4Nonprofits.com website. Its primary products are ACCOUNTS and DONATION.
Cooperstock Software was founded by Dan Cooperstock, a software developer with an M.Sc. in Computer Science and over 30 of programming and business experience.
Dan is also a Quaker, and has been both Treasurer and Clerk (chair) of his Quaker Meeting's Finance Committee, and Clerk of the Canada-wide Quaker organization's Finance Committee. Based both on this experience, and his experience writing and supporting DONATION since 1994, Dan has a solid understanding of the financial requirements of a small charitable organization.

Dan Cooperstock was excited to be able to hire Kwame to join him in Cooperstock Software part-time in November 2013 and full-time in February 2014. Kwame is a fellow Quaker with Dan, and, like Dan, has served as Treasurer of his local Quaker Meeting, and as co-clerk (co-chair) of the Canada-wide organization's Finance Committee and one of its Trustees. His education and most of his work experience has been as a mining engineer and geophysicist, but he has experience with programming as well. Kwame works with Dan in all aspects of the business.
Yida was hired by Dan as a full-time developer in September 2017. He has been an IT professional since 1995, and has worked in many different technical positions: IT support person, system administrator, network administrator, database administrator, software developer, and software project manager. Yida will participate in all aspects of Cooperstock Software's work, including technical support, but mostly in the ongoing development of our software.
Carl was hired by Dan as part-time Technical Support staff in 2017. Carl previously worked for Dan as a software installer at SimLaw Systems in Toronto and was a technical writer for eight years for Simware and OmniMark, two software firms in Ottawa, where he wrote user manuals and online help. Carl is also an active Quaker. Carl is a professional writer and editor who can be found at http://carl-ink.com/.
Penni Burrell is a Quaker with a long standing involvement with a variety of community non-profit organizations, as board and staff member. She appreciates programs such as Software4Nonprofits that offers more easily accessible financial management to such groups. She is helping Cooperstock Software with follow-up phone calls about annual renewal payments.
DONATION was Cooperstock Software's main product, until ACCOUNTS was introduced in 2012.
Dan Cooperstock wrote ACCOUNTS in 2012, after surveying his DONATION users about the possibility of doing so and receiving over 800 replies. It is meant to fill a need for churches, charities and non-profits to have an affordable, easy to use bookkeeping program that handles fund accounting easily and entirely automatically, unlike the major general purpose programs like QuickBooks, Quicken and Simply Accounting / Sage 50 Canadian Edition.
