The Seal symbolizes the foundation’s success in getting veterans high-quality jobs.
NEW YORK, NY – FourBlock Foundation has been awarded the 2018 Call of Duty Endowment Seal of Distinction.
The Endowment’s coveted Seal, dubbed the “standard of excellence in the veterans’ employment sector,” is accompanied by an unrestricted grant, which will be used to support the continued improvement and growth of FourBlock’s Career Readiness Program.
“We’re honored to have been selected as one of two 2018 Seal of Distinction recipients,” said FourBlock Executive Director Lauren Schulz-Carnes. “The Endowment shares our mission of helping veterans find high-quality, high-retention employment, and we look forward to growing this exciting new partnership throughout 2019.”
“We are proud to bestow this honor on two best-in-class organizations: Workshops for Warriors and FourBlock,” said Dan Goldenberg, Executive Director of the Call of Duty Endowment. “Through our rigorous vetting, in collaboration with Deloitte, these organizations have proven their abilities in preparing veterans to secure high-quality employment.”
To earn the Seal, FourBlock successfully met the Endowment’s extensive criteria. This included a thorough assessment of the foundation’s number of job placements made, average cost per placement, average starting salary, six-month retention rate, key employee background checks, and “a variety of organizational financial health indicators.”
The Endowment has helped place over 50,000 veterans in high-quality jobs since its inception in 2009. It aims to boost that number to 100,000 by 2024.
