Visioneer Shapes the Future of IT Leaders by Sponsoring The CIO Scholarship Fund Annual Golf Event | Visioneer

PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 31, 2016 — Visioneer was a Gold Sponsor at the 7th Annual CIO Scholarship Fund Charity Golf Tournament, which took place September 30 at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. More than sixty senior IT executives in the Bay Area participate in the event each year, which benefits economically disadvantaged college students pursuing IT and computer science related degrees in area two- and four-year colleges.

“Every year, as part of our “Where There Is a Need Program,” we find opportunities to give back to our community – it’s a big part of what we do at Visioneer,” said Walt Thinfen, President and CEO of Visioneer. “CIOs are important to business today and will become even more critical in the future as technology evolves. With this sponsorship we are able to help shape the next generation of CIOs, one tee off at a time.”

The Gold sponsorship package is offered exclusively to companies that provide innovative technologies to the enterprise market. Proceeds after covering costs of the tournament go directly to The CIO Scholarship Fund. Nearly $1 million has been raised through the Fund over the years.

“This is a pinnacle event for Bay Area CIOs and funds raised help us ensure future IT leaders have the support they need to succeed through scholarships, and career and mentoring guidance,” said Dean Lane, Founder and CEO, The CIO Scholarship Fund. “Without support from local technology companies like Visioneer, we would not be able to foster the future of IT leaders.”

The goal of Visioneer’s “Where There Is a Need” program is to encourage a positive impact through on the people that develop, manufacture and sell Visioneer products, the businesses and families that use the products and the communities in which we all live and work. Visioneer made its first commitment to corporate sustainability and social responsibility in 2011by partnering with The Arbor Day Foundation. To attain this goal, Visioneer donates $1 per registered scanner to an international disaster relief, cause, or environmental program.
