Donating to the Tech for Heroes program is as easy as playing in one of our special military-inspired daily fantasy contests. Thanks to our daily fantasy superstars, we’ve already raised over $36,000 from our Memorial Day and 4th of July contests! That means we’re more than two-thirds of the way to our goal of funding an additional coding boot camp for vets and their spouses. Now you can play in our Veterans Day contest to help us reach our goal.
“I’m truly grateful to DraftKings for putting together this scholarship and opportunity for both veterans and spouses. It’s not often that spouses are given an amazing opportunity alongside their veterans to learn and gain a new skillset that can be beneficial in this technological day and age.”
“I have learned more about the vast world of tech in the past month than I have in my previous 35 years on earth. This has been so incredibly beneficial to me. I wish this class was available when I got out of the service. Not only is this the best resource that has ever been available to me as a veteran, it’s a phenomenal way for employers to tap into veterans that are career and education oriented. This class is filled with people that never ever want to stop learning.”
