Description

Bob Woodruff, a journalist, was critically injured while reporting for ABC’s “World News Tonight” in 2006. Bob spent 36 days in a medically-induced coma, and his wife, Lee, was introduced to many families of service members dealing with Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injuries. While Bob eventually recovered, the Woodruff family made it their mission to help military and veterans struggling with these issues and many more.

Today, the Bob Woodruff Family Foundation has helped more than 2.5 million Veterans and Families by investing $45 million in innovative local and national programs and nonprofits. They have awarded over 370 grants for research, education, training, and other worthy causes.

Veterans Advantage supports the work of the Bob Woodruff Family Foundation, and our Board of Advisors member Gerry Byrne serves on the Board of Directors for the Foundation.

BWF leverages partnerships with leading nonprofits, corporations, the military and the government to find, fund and shape programs that meet the emerging and long-term needs of today’s veterans and their families.
