Salute To Service: Bob Woodruff Foundation


The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) was founded in 2006 after reporter Bob Woodruff was hit by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq. Since then, the Bob Woodruff Foundation has led an enduring call to action for people to stand up for heroes and meet the emerging and long-term needs of today’s veterans. To date, BWF has invested over $70 million to Find, Fund and Shape™ programs that have empowered impacted veterans, service members, and their family members, across the nation. For more information, please visit, on LinkedIn, or follow them on Twitter at @Stand4Heroes.

Veterans In Vitro InitiAtive (VIVA) Fund

The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) works in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs to inform veterans with service-connected fertility challenges of the various fertility benefits and services available to them. When the VA-funded program is not appropriate for a veteran, BWF provides up to $5,000 funding to veterans eligible for the BWF Veterans In Vitro InitiAtive (VIVA) Fund.
