Dear Reader: Did you know that we never charge charities to be rated on our site? This allows us to maintain independence and conduct unbiased evaluations. If everyone reading this now donated $5, our website would be sustained for years to come. If Charity Navigator is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and free for another year.
Charity Navigator is a nonprofit too. We rely on donations. If everyone reading this donated $5, we could keep it online for another year.

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.
