Dave's Way

PeopleSoft founder Dave Duffield has seen his Safety Net provide protection for a number of his former employees. The benevolent enterprise software founder, who sold his beloved company to Oracle earlier this year, has seen a number of former PeopleSoft employees tap into his kindness.

Duffield's Safety Net, which he endowed with $10 million, has doled out a total of $800,000 to date to former PeopleSoft employees who have fallen on hard times and have not yet found a new job, according to the New York Times.

While the grants are as much as $10,000 per former PeopleSoft employee, it's difficult to put a price on what his program has meant to the hearts of those who have used it.
