LAPS FOUNDATION News:

TechSource Inc., a locally-headquartered, science and engineering small business and subcontractor of Triad National Security, LLC, has announced that it will match all online donations to the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation (LAPS Foundation), up to $5,000, through Dec. 31, 2018.

This includes the LAPS Foundation’s new text-to-give feature, which makes it easy to contribute by texting INNOVATE to 779-48.

The LAPS Foundation’s goal is to raise $32,000 between now and the end of the year. The money raised supports innovation and growth in all Los Alamos Public Schools. Already in the current school year, the Foundation has contributed more than $15,000 to LAPS for innovative classroom resources and materials, professional development for teachers, and morale-boosting activities for LAPS staff. This includes 11 professional development activities, nine Great Ideas grants, and seven mini grants, all since August.

“Partnering with TechSource on this initiative is a great fit,” LAPS Foundation Executive Director Laura Loy said. “TechSource exemplifies the type of organization that embeds itself in its community, as evidenced by the fact that it has chosen to headquarter in Los Alamos. As a company, it cares about giving back to the community in which it is based. In addition, as a high-tech firm, it makes sense that TechSource would support online giving, especially via our brand new text-to-give feature.”

TechSource is a leading high-technology science and engineering small business offering recognized expertise in accelerator physics, nuclear sciences, engineering, systems engineering integration, and program and project management. They are known for their ability to provide expert assistance for projects covering policy to test bench technical and management support.

TechSource makes extensive use of our community’s major resource, our people. For more than over 20 years TechSource has successfully supported a diverse and expanding client base, including U.S. federal agencies, the national laboratories, the Navajo Nation, and commercial entities. TechSource is recognized as an independent, qualified expert whose advice and products uniquely and effectively bridge technical and programmatic requirements.
