OUR APPROACH

The Call of Duty Endowment uses a performance-driven approach to fund organizations delivering the highest standards of quality and cost-efficient veteran job placement services. Beyond funding, we partner with our grantees to provide an array of advice and support aimed at maximizing their impact.

In 2018, our grantee organization’s average cost to place a veteran in a job was $522, about ⅙ of the cost of U.S. government efforts. This is made possible by a commitment to high performance standards that are measured on a quarterly basis, including:

  • Cost per placement
  • Average starting salary
  • 6-month and 12-month retention rates
  • Full-time vs. part-time employment

In addition to supporting its grantees, the Endowment is committed to highlighting high performance in the veteran employment space through its Seal of Distinction program, which provides both a $30,000 prize and national recognition to winners of the award.
