Monday, February 5 – Giving Hearts Day is this Thursday – a daylong fundraising for charities across the region. This week, we’re highlighting a few of the participating organizations. The Longspur Prairie Fund is dedicated to protecting native plants, animals, habitats, and their ecologies. We visit with founder Peter Schultz. ~~~ Sonja Jenson earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science in 1977. She was soon working as an independent, custom programmer, which led to her work with Prairie Public Broadcasting to develop fundraising software. This soon became Allegiance Software, a company serving non-profit organizations around the country. On the occasion of her retirement, she joins us to discuss her career as one of the early women in the field of computer science.
