Houston, TX, November 27, 2018 – NextOp, Inc. is pleased to announce it has received a generous grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) to support NextOp’s Veteran Employment Program. This grant will help improve NextOp’s survey response rate, data collection, and analysis to understand NextOp outcomes better and to describe the impact of NextOp’s program beyond job placement. The overall goal and mission of NextOp is to recruit, train, and place high-performing middle-enlisted military leaders into industry careers. This would not be possible without the assistance we receive from foundations like the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

“We’ve focused our investments on programs that meet the urgent and emerging needs of the military-veteran community,” said Anne Marie Dougherty, Executive Director at the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “We’re excited that this Fall’s grant recipients represent a balance of both programs new to BWF and also longstanding partners, with whom we effectively address our priorities for this year and beyond. These outcome-oriented programs all help ensure that the Post-9/11 community will thrive after service.”

“Support like this makes it possible for NextOp to continue to serve our veteran community. We thank the Bob Woodruff Foundation for this generous grant and for their commitment to help nonprofits who serve our nation’s veterans.” stated NextOp Executive Director John Boerstler.

The Bob Woodruff Foundation is committed to creating long-lasting positive outcomes for our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured veterans, service members, families, and caregivers. BWF leverages its expertise and collaborative network to find, fund and shape innovative programs that help our impacted veterans, service members and their families thrive.
