The Junior Seau Foundation, founded by NFL All-Pro Linebacker Junior Seau, today announced that it is the recipient of $900,000 in Fujitsu technology and services. The products are part of a $30 million technology grant program designed to benefit and serve the technological needs of community-based and non-profit organizations nationwide that are selected by a third party consulting firm.

"I am honored and humbled that the Foundation has been selected as a beneficiary of this technology grant program and that it will receive nearly $1,000,000 in Fujitsu products and services," stated Junior Seau. "This demonstration of confidence in my organization's ability to deploy the technology grant through our network affirms my belief that corporations and individuals can support the Junior Seau Foundation and be assured that their generosity is used wisely to benefit the youth and community of San Diego."

The Junior Seau Foundation has long been recognized as one of the premier professional athlete foundations in the country. Junior’s vision has always been to maximize his role as a professional athlete to help as many people as he can. The communities of San Diego have benefited from the Foundation’s scholarships and support programs, as well as from Junior’s active involvement as a positive role model.

The Junior Seau Foundation will distribute the Fujitsu technology to the following San Diego network beneficiaries:

  • San Diego Family Justice Center Foundation ($400,000), which supports victims of domestic violence. The technology will support the sharing of information between other centers, and will provide education for volunteers and clients.
  • Center for Community Solutions ($300,000), a group that fosters the creation of violent-free communities. The Fujitsu products and services will give students, staff, clients and their families access to technology for educational purposes.
  • Vista Hill’s Stein Education Center ($200,000), which serves the individuals, families and communities of San Diego County. Students and faculty of the Center will benefit from access to state-of-the-art technology for classroom and community-based learning.

"The Junior Seau Foundation’s support and dedication to both San Diego's youth and the community is exceptional," said Lorne Wilson, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. "The technology will provide students, families and support providers with access to state of the art technology which will enhance their learning and facilitate access to community-based services."

The independently managed technology grant program will provide non-profit organizations with products such as Fujitsu laptops and tablet PCs, the PalmSecure™ biometric authentication device, and scanner solutions. The grant program will benefit non-profit organizations in the education, healthcare, arts and environment sectors by equipping them with the latest in leading-edge products and services.
