Reviews for OnBehalf.org

Rating: 4 stars  

OnBehalf is one of the few organizations that actually helps and look out for Veterans when they are in need.

other organizations have a lot of red tapes, to weed out most (if not all) Veterans. OhBehalf doesn't do that.

thank you so much.

OnBehalf.Org is an amazing nonprofit! Mr. Gifford was beyond kind and professional. He helped our family with our bills when we needed it the most. We are so grateful and hope to give back to a wonderful organization. Thank you, OnBehalf.Org!!!

I had an unfortunate situation with the VA and didn't receive my benefits. On behalf was able to provide assistance within 48 hours which took a load off of me.

I was honestly at the end of my rope, I got out of the military, had a terrible divorce, couldn't hold a job down, and honestly was looking down the barrel of the gun, OnBehalf got me in contact with the VA to help my suicidal depression stemming from when I was injured in Afghanistan, they even helped me so I would have a place to live so I wouldn't be homeless, this is an amazing foundation doing amazing work for veterans.

My husband is a disabled vet whom lost his left leg and suffered multiple other injuries. We recently ran into a few set backs in life that left us worried. I nominated my husband to get help from onbehalf.org. I got a reponse right away. They are very kind... I got the feeling that they truly care about the soldiers and not just doing it for publicity. After speaking with them they did not have me jump through hoops and very fast they had a payment to go towards our mortgage and I am truly grateful for that. We need more organizations to be this way. Thank you

OnBehalf.org is a highly rated organization that is dedicated to helping veterans in whatever way they need assistance. From a donor perspective, they are personable and immediately responsive to questions, with personal emails directly from Mike. Our veterans deserve so much more than they are getting, and OnBehalf.org is making a huge difference in veterans' lives. I'm thrilled to be a monthly donor!

Anytime one of our clients are in dire need of financial help, OnBehalf has responded with a sense of urgency unlike any other state or federal program. OnBegalf is our go to partner and we are proud to endorse them because they make sure the Veterans they serve are their #1 priority.

I have to admit to a bit of bias since I've known Mike all his life and I know the integrity and the sincerity behind this mission. But it also takes personal time and lots of energy with frustrations to ultimately cause that support, assist, or even just a recognition to the person who offered themselves to the possibility of so many terrible scenarios. Their family also may have paid a dear price. Now that they are civilians, do we owe them nothing?

You can trust that anything you offer will be treated with the same focus that was needed during his service. Accident and injury can befall anyone but these were not accidents, these were choices thoughtfully made by ordinary people who suddenly became extraordinary.
