C.O.D.E. Bowl III - Trophy In Space

“This year, the C.O.D.E. Bowl will take Raleigh, North Carolina by storm with a thrilling Warzone 2.0 battle to see if anyone can pry the trophy away from Space Force,” said Dan Goldenberg in a press release. Goldberg is the executive director of the Call of Duty Endowment. “The event will be incredibly fun to watch, but we never lose sight of our important mission of placing the 61% of veterans who identify as being either unemployed or underemployed into meaningful careers.”


The Call of Duty Endowment, which was founded by Activision, awards money to organizations that have a proven record of getting veterans connected with jobs; past grantees include the Salvation Army, Hire Heroes USA, Goodwill, and Operation: Job Ready Placement. C.O.D.E. said in its press release that it spent an average of $547 per veteran in 2021 to place them into jobs, which can include any veteran struggling with professional development, especially after serving in the field.
