Microsoft Donates $250,000 to Call of Duty Endowment Program

July 1, 2011, By Christian Davis

The non-profit organization known as Call of Duty Endowment seeks to put soldiers returning home back on their feet and help them settle into civilization easier. Today, the organization has received a generous six figure donation from Microsoft.

$250,000 has been donated in both money and software to the organization. Activision head, Bobby Kotick,  was at the grand opening of the store in Century City California to receive the donation. Kotick stated, “As business leaders, we have a responsibility to ensure that every veteran who leaves the military is honored with a good paying job in the 21st Century. I hope that more companies will step forward to help us in this fight, just as Microsoft has done today.”

The newly announced Call of Duty Convention will also donate all it’s proceeds to the non-profit organization as well. It’s only a matter of time before more companies start to donate and keep this organization alive and kicking.
