The donation funded by the NFL Foundation will broaden the league’s efforts to support veterans, service members, their families and their caregivers. The partnership is designed to optimize the NFL’s impact on the military community by leveraging BWF’s expertise as a grant maker to the most innovative programs across the country and deep knowledge of the urgent and emerging needs of service members and their families.

For decades, the NFL has honored and supported veterans, service members and their families through Salute to Service, a year-round effort that works to honor, empower and connect those who serve through the unifying lens of football and strategic partnerships with impact-driven organizations.

This morning, TONY RICHARDSON, NFL Legend and son of a retired Army Sergeant Major, joined the “Good Morning Football” crew in studio at NFL Experience Times Square to break the news and discuss the importance of this partnership and the immediate impact it will have on our nation’s heroes.

“The NFL is proud to partner with the Bob Woodruff Foundation and continue our efforts to positively impact the military community,” said NFL Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility ANNA ISAACSON. “As a respected thought leader, the Bob Woodruff Foundation provides us with the most effective expertise to address the needs of our service members. The NFL is committed to evolving its work in the military landscape and funding programs that will make a tangible, long-lasting impact on our nation’s heroes.”

The Bob Woodruff Foundation expertly navigates the landscape of 40,000+ military- and veteran-serving organizations to fund best-in-class programs that ensure positive outcomes. The NFL’s investment to BWF will create the grant referral pipeline and also support the Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community Initiative. The latter will foster physical health and wellness, create healthy habits, and increase social connectedness for veterans, service members, and their families and caregivers.

“Collaboration is at the core of who we are at the Bob Woodruff Foundation; by joining in partnership with the NFL, we continue to affirm our collective commitment to our country’s veterans,” said ANNE MARIE DOUGHERTY, Executive Director, Bob Woodruff Foundation. “Based on BWF’s understanding of the veterans landscape, and the NFL’s tremendous Salute to Service efforts, we see a ripe opportunity through strategic initiatives to impact positively the lives of more veterans, service members and their families than ever before.”

The Bob Woodruff Foundation is currently accepting grant proposals as part of this partnership, and its upcoming fall cycle, through June 11. Grants for this cycle will be announced in October. To learn more, visit

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issues statement on new policies for National Anthem

The policy adopted today was approved in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country — one that is extraordinary in its scope, resources, and alignment with our players. We are dedicated to continuing our collaboration with players to advance the goals of justice and fairness in all corners of our society.

The efforts by many of our players sparked awareness and action around issues of social justice that must be addressed. The platform that we have created together is certainly unique in professional sports and quite likely in American business.  We are honored to work with our players to drive progress.

It was unfortunate that on-field protests created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic. This is not and was never the case.

This season, all league and team personnel shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem. Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room until after the Anthem has been performed.

We believe today’s decision will keep our focus on the game and the extraordinary athletes who play it—and on our fans who enjoy it.




The 32 member clubs of the National Football League have reaffirmed their strong commitment to work alongside our players to strengthen our communities and advance social justice.  The unique platform that we have created is unprecedented in its scope, and will provide extraordinary resources in support of programs to promote positive social change in our communities.


The membership also strongly believes that:


  1. All team and league personnel on the field shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
  2. The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the Anthem.
  3. Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room or in a similar location off the field until after the Anthem has been performed.
  4. A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
  5. Each club may develop its own work rules, consistent with the above principles, regarding its personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
  6. The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.​
