We are proud to announce that Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing has received a grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) to support our annual Rod Building Competition and to provide continued training to our volunteer leadership so they can best serve the disabled veterans in their communities; BWF works to ensure impacted post-9/11 service members, veterans and their families are thriving long after they return home. The team at BWF navigates the maze of over 46,000 nonprofit organizations to find and fund innovative programs in communities where post-9/11 veterans, their families and caregivers live and work.
“We are proud to continue our relationship with the Bob Woodruff Foundation’s grantee network,” says CEO Todd Desgrosseilliers, “This grant will enable us to continue providing the educational, training, and core-program activities necessary to best serve our Nation’s wounded, ill, and injured active duty military and disabled veterans at Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers nationwide.”
Receiving a grant from BWF is an honor that recognizes the dedication, focus and effectiveness of our staff, volunteers and supporters. As a grant recipient, our organization joins the Bob Woodruff Foundation grantee network, a collaboration of top-tier programs and advocates investing in the next chapter of our veterans.
