CriticalRiver has always been on the lookout for ways to positively impact lives. We are engaged in several community-focused and CSR initiatives such as raising funds for underprivileged students, working with non-profits to promote the Indian Literacy Program, and more. We partnered with the CIO Scholarship Fund and organized the CriticalRiver Open, a prestigious fundraiser golf tournament this past year. We raised and contributed $10,000 to the CIO Scholarship Fund, and encouraged tournament winners to donate their prize money, amounting to a total of $19000, to various charity organizations.
CriticalRiver also organized the Dallas Open Golf Tournament, contributing $7666 to TexVet, a Texas-based veterans’ community.
CIO Scholarship Fund Raising
CriticalRiver Joins CIOSF in Raising $750,000 for Underprivileged Students Scholarships.
CIO magazine conducts an Annual Charity Golf Tournament every year to help economically disadvantaged college students attending two and four-year colleges in the Bay Area who are pursuing degrees in IT and computer science-related fields.
Many of these students are the first of their family to earn a college degree and are often overcoming challenging circumstances as they pursue a career in the realm of information technology. The CIO Scholarship Fund (CIOSF) embraces the philosophy that individuals who are able to overcome adversity bring unique skills and value to the workplace.
The fund covers various aspects of education from scholarships to internships. This year CriticalRiver also became a part of this esteemed journey and helped raise about $750,000 in student scholarships, tutoring programs. In 2018, the event was on the 22 of September at the Wente Vineyards. This exclusive event is for CIOs in the San Francisco Bay Area with over fifty senior IT executives participating each year. This elite group of IT Royalty has pledged their support to help make this annual tournament a continuing success.
