Thank you for your interest and support!

I am a veteran who is in need of much help. I contacted on behalf.org for assistance and they gave me some much needed help for me and my family. I am medically unable to work right now and everything counts and matters. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much to OnBehalf.org for your donation to the Veteran in need. I'm a social worker within the VA and it can be time-consuming and somewhat difficult to receive donations, especially "general" donations that can help with anything from gas to groceries. But, Mike assisted this Veteran in securing much needed extra funds as "our" combat Veteran continues on his path toward financial independence. Thanks for being there for him!

I was looking for some help and found it right here with On Behalf! This organization helped me when I needed it. Truly a fantastic program and Mike was great to communicate with and honest the whole way through. Mike even called a couple times making sure I was where I needed to be on my situation and that I was getting assistance with VA etc. Thank you again for helping me out of a stressful situation!

I found OnBehalf while researching VA Organizations online. I decided to reach our to Mike Gifford for some more insight and possible assistance. In return, I got a call from Mike and more importantly, a great conversation. What made the conversation great was Mike. He carries a very strong combination of intelligence, drive, common sense, and integrity. It is no surprise why he leads OnBehalf and it is no surprise why OnBehalf has generated such success. I feel fortunate to have found this organization.

When my world was falling apart, Mike came through and helped me not just financially, but with words of encouragement, understanding and good humor. I was able to fix my car and keep my apartment.

I recently discovered OnBehalf.org. After seeing the difference they are making in helping our brothers and sisters in arms, I will support them. Veterans helping veterans! That's a way to make a difference.

I run a non-profit that assists Veterans in obtaining their VA Benefits. Every time I turn to OnBehalf while the Veteran is awaiting an answer from the VA, OnBehalf has come thru with solid results. OnBehalf and their members are pioneers in how Veterans reintegrate into society. These qualities are evident in their dedication to our Veterans and their proven track record of success. I look forward to collaborating with this honorable organization for decades to come!

OnBehalf is truly a model charitable organization that supports veterans and their families. This past December, while conducting a search of New York's best charities, I came upon OnBehalf. I read about all the support the organization has provided to veterans. I regret taking so long to help.

Mike and his team have given so much for this country and they are continuing down that path by ensuring our veterans are taken care of. Their professionalism and the direct impact to these veterans is what has driven us to support this charity. We will continue to do so in our best capacity.
