Wounded Warrior Project Partners with The Honor Foundation Once Again For 2023

The Honor Foundation has been named a community partner and grant recipient, continuing a five-year partnership between the two non-profits.

November 2, 2023 – (San Diego, California) The Honor Foundation (THF), a unique transition institute that serves U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) by providing a clear process for their transition from military to civilian careers, announced today that it has been named by Wounded Warrior Project ® (WWP) as a community partner grant recipient for 2023-2024.

This continues a legacy of support between the two non-profit organizations, who have been community partners since 2018. WWP proactively identifies and supports best-in-class military and veterans service organizations to expand resources so we can meet the most pressing needs of veterans, their families, and caregivers. WWP’s grant will help THF grow its mission to support members of the SOF community transitioning from military to civilian life and its vision of reaching and serving the entire Special Operations Forces enterprise.

“Wounded Warrior Project and THF share a common goal to build a network of support for our veterans. This grant is invaluable to the expansion of our programs and will aid in our ability to help change the lives of members of the SOF community and their families. We’re so grateful to WWP and the many years of support and partnership they have given us, and we know our continued collective work will help create a true ecosystem of support for our veterans,” says Matt Stevens, CEO of THF. THF’s program helps SOF operators navigate the change from military to civilian life and careers through an executive-education style transition curriculum that combines one-on-one executive coaching and industry mentorship, three months of class instruction, and access to an elite, nationwide professional network. The servicemen and women that have matriculated through the program, over 2,200 to date, are infusing businesses, corporations, and communities with leadership, innovation, and service. WWP has long been an advocate for this work, and this grant strengthens each organization’s effort to help the special operations forces community succeed in their journey after active-duty service.
