So blessed to not only have been helped by onbehalf in 2014 as my husband is a wounded combat veteran... But I've been so inspired by mikes work and with his mentoring I'm not a member of the team! Best org out there

I commend the work that is going on at OnBehalf. They help veterans with their needs. I'm so thankful there is a organization like OnBehalf. Unlike some organizations, OnBehalf is a not a for-profit. The Director at OnBehalf doesn't make anything. I'm so thankful to be a part of OnBehalf!

This is a well organized and very thoughtful organization. Their mission is wonderful. I highly recommend this organization that is so dedicated to helping our military that we owe for our safety and security.

I started volunteering with OnBehalf about 2 years ago. Besides the fact that it is such a great organization with a mission to help ease the lives of veterans, they possess a very dedicated staff force. Mike Gifford is constantly coming up with new ways to fundraise for this non-profit and as has been extremely successful thus far. I know single-handedly, I was able to help numerous veterans, whether it was cheaper dental bills, or just a round of golf to try and alleviate the stress, who were extremely thankful. OnBehalf is a great organization that helps give back to those who risk their lives for our freedom.

Working to connect veterans to local clinics that provide safe, free or low cost acupuncture ( veteransproject.net) that helps with PTSD, addiction, depression, pain, I have found OnBehalf.org to be involved, upstanding, understanding and available to all who approach them. This organization is founded by those they serve! They have boots on the ground in the real world of returning home.

On behalf came through with assistance on moving expenses, couldn't have been a better experience during a stressful time. I will be working with them in the future when my non-profit is up an running. I'd give 6 stars if I could!

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.

Mike and his team do an exceptional job of not only providing an exceptional service to those who have served our country, but also educating on topics of awareness and why to contribute. I've volunteered for OnBehalf for the past couple years and have really seen the passion and dedication they have put towards helping wounded/injured veterans and their families. Where the systems in place for our veterans and their families fall short, OnBehalf is right there to assist in any way they can.

OnBehalf is one of the most generous, hard working, and committed non-profits I've seen. The amount of blood, sweat and tears these men & women put into this organization is amazing and admirable. I only hope they continue to raise more money and help more injured Vets from coast to coast. God bless you guys!

Mike and the team organized a group to run the New Hampshire Tough Mudder in June 2013. Had the best day out and raised a bunch of money. The effort and commitment they put in is second to none. I'll be supporting them again in 2014 with other fundraising efforts!
