The Backup You Need

The Bob Woodruff Foundation partners with innovative nonprofits to find, fund and shape programs across the nation that best meet the emerging and long-term needs of today’s veterans and their families.

Beyond awarding grants to these partners, we work closely with them to ensure efficiency, gain awareness for evolving trends within the veteran space, and provide opportunities for collaboration with other members of the grantee network.

National Reach with a Local Impact

Over 18.2 million veterans live in our nation’s 3,141 counties. Access to services that meet veterans’ needs varies from community to community because systems aren’t integrated. By taking on the role of intermediary, the Got Your 6 Network creates the connections needed for a stronger ecosystem.

Hope for a Growing Family

Supporting programs that help veterans begin a family is rooted in the Bob Woodruff Foundation mission, and we are proud to have funded more than 30 veterans since we initiated the Veterans In Vitro Initiative (VIVA) Fund in 2016.

Our VIVA Initiative

We’ve Got Your Six

The Bob Woodruff Foundation’s initiatives and programs can offer help with common issues such as starting a family, finding a job, or finding needed resources for improving quality of life.

If you’re seeking help closer to home, our Got Your 6 Network is home to 112 local groups in 46 states, and can offer help for everything from mental health services to housing assistance and adaptive sports.
