Overall Score & Rating 97.24 four stars
  Financial 96.10 four stars

This rating was published 02/01/2017 and includes data from FY2015, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The Bob Woodruff Family Foundation's mission is to ensure injured post-9/11 service members, veterans, and their families are thriving long after they return home. We find and fund innovative programs, with a special emphasis on the hidden injuries, in communities where veterans, their families, and caregivers live and work. We tackle the problems that can prevent our veterans from fulfilling their dreams for the next chapter of their lives. It is by connecting communities with the brave heroes returning to them, that we are best able to provide more than stopgap measures, but long-term solutions that take a holistic approach to recovery.
