Bob Woodruff Foundation Invests $3.9 Million in 34 Organizations that Support Veterans and Service Members

Bob Woodruff Foundation Invests $3.9 Million in 34 Organizations that Support Veterans and Service Members

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) is proud to announce an investment of over $3.9M to 34 organizations that work to ensure that veterans, service members, their families, and caregivers thrive. The grant portfolio supports programs that address a wide range of veterans' needs, including clinical mental healthcare, legal services, homeless and housing services, employment, and case management. Two of the grants were expedited in October in response to the devastation in Florida by Hurricane Ian.

"BWF's investment in these organizations reflects our commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of our veterans, service members, their families, and caregivers," said Anne Marie Dougherty, CEO of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. "I'm proud that our current funding includes a focus on the wellbeing of the entire family, as we know it's not just the veteran who's impacted by military service but their families as well." 

Eight grants were made possible through BWF's partnership with the National Football League (NFL). With a focus on community building and social interaction, NFL-BWF funding will support community arts programming, one-on-one youth mentoring for Gold Star children, and a new USA Wheelchair Football League team in Los Angeles. NFL-BWF grants will also provide homeless services, food assistance, and case management to help veterans achieve and maintain long-term stability and wellbeing.

The remaining grants support programs that:

  • increase accessibility to high-quality, evidence-based mental healthcare to address PTSD, substance use disorder, and TBI
  • provide legal assistance to increase veterans' access to benefits and decrease barriers to long-term stability
  • provide comprehensive services to veterans experiencing homelessness and/or those at risk of becoming homeless
  • ensure the success of student veterans
  • meet veterans' immediate basic needs, including food insecurity
  • improve the emotional, mental, and financial wellbeing of military/veteran households.

Visit the fall 2022 grants page for complete information on the organizations and their work.

With the fall 2022 grant cycle concluded, the Bob Woodruff Foundation is accepting applications for spring 2023. Learn more and apply here
