The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit public benefit corporation which helps service members transition to civilian careers after their military service. The Call of Duty Endowment focuses its resources on assisting organizations that provide job placement and training to veterans, as well as engaging the media and public forums to raise awareness about the issue. Activision Blizzard launched the organization in October 2009, with a commitment to donate and raise millions of dollars for the cause. To help guide the endowment, CEO Bobby Kotick has recruited an advisory board composed of respected veterans representing the various service branches. Just as our men and women in the armed forces fought to protect our nation and liberties, CODE will fight to ensure that they find a career they deserve on leaving the military.
Our mission is to create a national campaign that will assist those organizations that provide our former service members with job placement, training and educational services in their post military careers. We will strive to show America how the private sector can mobilize and reward our proud veterans with employment. Our goal is to raise millions of dollars through an initial donation by Activision Blizzard, which will be supplemented by additional donations from the corporate world and the generosity of everyday civilians.
