Code Platoon Receives Alliant Credit Union Foundation Grant

Code Platoon has received a grant from the Alliant Credit Union Foundation for the amount of $2,500 to provide ongoing support to the mission of transforming Veterans and military spouses into full-stack developers. This marks the third year in a row that the foundation has aided the Coding Bootcamp and its military-affiliated students, totaling their financial sponsorship to $7,500. 

“Our foundation is proud to partner with Code Platoon as it helps Veterans and military spouses transition their skills from military to civilian life,” stated Wayne Rosenwinkel, President of the Alliant Credit Union Foundation. 

The Alliant Credit Union Foundation, headquartered in Chicago, has been dedicated to the economic empowerment and self-sufficiency of the people of Chicago since its founding in 2008. The Alliant Credit Union Foundation knows that when they invest in the community the result is a stronger and more economically stable population that can help to continue building better opportunities within Chicagoland. 

“With these funds, Code Platoon will be able to continue to educate Veterans and military spouses with in-demand programming skills, provide professional guidance, and help place graduates into paid internships within the city of Chicago,” says Rod Levy, Founder and Executive Director of Code Platoon. “The funding from Alliant Credit Union Foundation cannot be understated and Code Platoon’s team thanks Alliant Credit Union Foundation for its continued support. 

The Alliant Credit Union Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable foundation established in 2008 to promote economic empowerment and self-sufficiency in people, especially in communities where Alliant Credit Union members and employees live and work. The Alliant Credit Union Foundation is a separate, independent legal entity, incorporated in Illinois and operated by a Board of Directors comprised of Alliant Credit Union employees.

Code Platoon is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that helps Veterans and military spouses transition into the civilian workforce by providing technical training and career placement. For 15 weeks the students are immersed in learning the full web development stack, including Python, Django, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. No previous programming skills are required. After completing the program the Veteran or military spouse will be hireable as a junior full-stack web developer and eligible for an internship.
