What We Do
The EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to Active-Duty, Reserve and National Guard, Retired and Veteran EOD technicians and their families.
Our support includes financial assistance and additional services such as morale events, peer-to-peer support, educational programs, connections to resources, care of the EOD Memorial, and sustained contact with our EOD warriors and their families.

Who are we?
Pillars of Support
The Foundation offers four pillars of support and handles each request on a case-by-case basis. The immediate and ongoing assistance and resources provided by the Foundation to those in the EOD community are intended to provide support above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The EOD Warrior Foundation provides financial assistance to EOD warriors and families to help alleviate the financial burdens and stress during their most difficult times. The Foundation awards two types of grants: initial grants and follow-on grants.
As part of our commitment to providing educational assistance, the EOD Warrior Foundation annually awards academic scholarships to EOD dependents, with priority given to family members of fallen and wounded EOD warriors.
Hope & Wellness
The Foundation provides additional support and resources to assist our EOD warriors and families as they face challenges, changes and uncertainty in their lives. We help to create a network of connections to resources to assist them as they move through the recovery and grief process and adjust to a new life.
The EOD Warrior Foundation is dedicated to honoring the legacy of our fallen EOD warriors by providing for the maintenance and care of the EOD Memorial at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. The EOD Memorial honors EOD warriors who gave their lives in the performance of their duties.
