Indian Motorcycle announced its partnership with the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization that helps veterans find high quality jobs after military service. Throughout the month of May, consumers can support the cause by test riding an Indian Motorcycle at their local dealership. For each test ride, Indian Motorcycle will donate $25 directly to CODE, with a donation goal of up to $30,000.
Consumers will have the opportunity to ride any of the 2019 Indian Motorcycle models, while raising money to support veterans entering the workforce.
“The Call of Duty Endowment has an incredible mission to aid veterans in establishing post-military careers,” said Reid Wilson, senior director for Indian Motorcycle. “The men and women who have served our country have given so much for us and we are proud to support them as they transition to civilian life.”
The Endowment is a non-profit that helps veterans find high quality jobs in addition to raising awareness about the value veterans bring to the workplace. With impressive success, the organization has placed over 57,000 veterans in jobs since its start in 2009. The Call of Duty Endowment measures their success by analyzing average cost per placement, salary, retention rate, and full-time vs. part-time employment. Remarkably, the average salary of veterans placed by CODE is almost double that of the national median income. With continued tenacity, the non-profit has set an ambitious goal to place 100,000 veterans in jobs by the year 2024.
“We are proud to partner with Indian Motorcycle, as the brand has a long history of supporting the U.S. military and its veterans,” said Dan Goldenberg, the Endowment’s executive director. “By test riding Indian motorcycles, consumers will greatly help our mission of assisting veterans in finding meaningful employment.”
