Bobby Kotick Teams with the Pilot Company for Veterans Non-Profit
Who is Bobby Kotick
Bobby Kotick is the CEO of Activision Blizzard, a video game developer that has created classic games such as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft. He is also on the boards of The Coca-Cola Company, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Center for Early Education, and more. He is also the chairman of The Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization that helps veterans find careers once returning home.
The Call of Duty Endowment Receives New Funding
The Call of Duty Endowment recently teamed up with the Pilot Company to raise an additional $1.75 million, absolutely crushing their original goal of $500,000. Pilot and the Call of Duty Endowment teamed up for a campaign that encouraged members of Pilot to donate to a good cause. Pilot even advertised during two NASCAR races, painting one of the vehicles with a collage of former military members already helped by the non-profit.
The organization focuses on finding real careers for ex-military members. They aren’t simply getting them in contact with temporary job agencies. They are working closely with ex-military members to find them a rewarding, life-long career. The recent funding is enough to find over 3,000 ex-service members meaningful careers.
Pilot and Activision Blizzard’s CEO teamed up with a goal in mind. They wanted to find 100,000 ex-military members careers by 2024.
Pilot also sent out a big thanks to their ex-military customers. All Veterans received a free $10 meal through the myRewards Plus app. Military members also receive a discount once they have verified their military status with ID.me.
