Despite the decreasing unemployment rate among the post-9/11 veterans population, there is still much work to be done to help vets find quality jobs. That’s why the Call Of Duty Endowment, the philanthropic arm of Activision Blizzard, is committed to bolstering nonprofits that deliver “ the highest standards of quality and cost-efficient veteran job placement services.”

The application process is still open for the Endowment’s annual Seal of Distinction awards, which recognizes organizations that demonstrate “effectiveness, efficiency and integrity in placing veterans in quality jobs.” Awardees each receive a $30,000 grant and the opportunity to apply for future funding.

“For most veterans, having meaningful employment is the single most important factor in successfully transitioning back to civilian life,” said Dan Goldenberg, executive director of the Call of Duty Endowment. “The Seal of Distinction award recognizes organizations that are creating a real difference in the lives of our nation’s veterans.”

Nonprofit organizations may apply for the “Seal of Distinction” now through May 30, 2016, by completing an online application here.
