Getting Veterans Back To Work
The Call of Duty Endowment is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation supported by Activision Blizzard. The Endowment helps veterans find high-quality careers by identifying and funding the most efficient and effective organizations that share our mission of helping unemployed and underemployed veterans. Founded in 2009, the endowment supports high performing groups that prepare Veterans for the job market and raises awareness of the value vets bring to the workplace. To date, Activision Blizzard has donated more than $36 million to the Endowment and funds 100% of the Endowment’s operating costs.
The Endowment uses a performance-driven approach to find and support organizations delivering the highest standards of quality and cost-efficient veteran job placement services. As a result, the average starting salaries for veterans supported by the Call of Duty Endowment in 2019 were over $60,000 - 21% higher than the national veteran salary. In addition, the Endowment highlights high performance in the veteran employment space through its Seal of Distinction program, which provides both a $30,000 prize and national recognition to recipients of the award. All Endowment grantees are Seal of Distinction winners.
