We have a dedication to volunteerism, sponsorship, and organizational support, and our staff is encouraged to share in our efforts or those of their choosing. Please follow the links below to learn more about a few of our outstanding local organizations.

User Groups

Advanced DataTools is dedicated to fostering the wider Informix community. As such, we are the proud sponsor of several local and international user groups. We provide event support and sponsorship to help these groups continue their mission, and have several staff members active on their boards. Visit our User Groups page.

Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance

We are proud to have supported the work of VSDVAA since 1998. Advanced DataTools completed the web-based VAdata Collection System application, and provides ongoing support to re-engineer and expand the system using new tools.

VAdata is used by programs across the state of Virginia to collect domestic violence information from victims and families. This information is used to increase awareness, procure additional funding for victim and family services, and to report domestic violence statistics to the funding sources of the various programs.

The Choralis Foundation

Choralis was founded in 2000 by Artistic Director Gretchen Kuhrmann, and is recognized across the Washington, DC area for its musical excellence by critics and audiences alike.

As one of the founding members, Linda Knutsen has encouraged an active involvement in Choralis programs. In addition to its outstanding local performances, Choralis also sponsors programs for aspiring vocal and choral high school musicians, and a chamber ensemble, Echos. Employees have consistently been members of the chorus, a former employee serves on the Board of Directors, and we are a proud "charter sponsor" of Choralis.

Educational Outreach

As part of our commitment to our community, Advanced DataTools has trained and employed several young adults to help them prepare for their future careers. We believe that fostering the careers of these student-employees can help to make our future world a better place.
