Call of Duty Endowment Creates Seal of Distinction for Non-Profit Organizations
Activision has received very positive attention following an announcement made earlier this week. Call of Duty Endowment, a private, non-profit organization, will be partnering with consulting firm Deloitte to create a “Seal of Distinction.” This seal will be awarded to other non-profit organizations, which aim to help veterans find jobs. Any organization that receives the Call of Duty Endowment Seal of Distinction will receive an unrestricted grant for $30,000, and will become eligible to receive further, restricted, grants in the future.
Dan Goldenberg, the executive director of Call of Duty Endowment, explained the purpose of the seal, “Our goal at the Endowment is to invest in groups that have demonstrated exceptional effectiveness at placing veterans into high quality careers. Our new Seal of Distinction opens the door to give the best organizations an opportunity to showcase their success and access more resources.”
The first non-profit organization to earn the Seal of Distinction, is the U.S. Chamber Foundation, located in Washington, D.C. Organizations can continue to apply for the Endowment’s Seal of Distinction until September 27.
