Do I need a new alternater or is something else wrong?

(1999 Pontiac Grand Am)
in Pekin, IL on August 23, 2014
It's been sitting for a while. Replaced the battery a few months ago. I get nothing when I put my keys in the ignition. No electricity at all. Starts right up when jumped but dies once you stop revving the engine.
