A Brief History of DONATION
DONATION is Cooperstock Software's main product.
- Dan Cooperstock wrote the original DOS version of DONATION in 1994 in response to difficulty finding software that met the needs of his Quaker Meeting.
- In 1998, Dan rewrote DONATION as a Windows program, and in 1999 began giving it away for free.
- Cooperstock Software launched another extensive rewrite of DONATION in 2007 to capitalize on newer technology, and to add many user-requested features, and changed the program to be commercial.
