Mission: Founded in 2005 by 4 USAR veterans, OnBehalf.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to raise funds and professional services for injured veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as for the families of the fallen. Due to our all-volunteer team and low administrative expenses, over 90% of your tax-deductible contribution will reach injured veterans and military families. Or, if you're an independent professional or small business owner, consider contributing your discounted or complimentary item or service to our Professional Network, where we match your donation with eligible military candidates. Thank you for your interest and support!
Results: It's been a banner year for OnBehalf, with fundraisers involving mud runs, golf tournaments, pub crawls and good old fashioned campaigns. Having worked with such fine organizations as the VFW, Wounded Warrior Project and Walter Reed, we've made this happen.
Target demographics: wounded veterans from Iraq & Afghanistan
Direct beneficiaries per year: Approximately 10
Geographic areas served: New York, New Jersey and New England
Programs: financial grants for those injured vets trying to make ends meet, and sponsoring enjoyable activities that add to their quality of life.

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!

I worked closely with Mike on his digital strategy/promotion. He not only is one of the most focused individuals I know, he is one of the most compassionate and driven. He truly believes in making a difference to those who need help. If you're going to donate your time, money or services, rest assured it is going to an individual in need.

I'm in New York and have seen the passion that Mike exhibits every day when he talks about and promotes OnBehalf. This is a fantastic organization where donors can rest assured their contributions are allocated wisely and volunteers see their time richly rewarded. As a vet I may not be the most "objective" on this topic, but please consider volunteering or donating and you will see just what a great cause this is.

I am an ambassador for OnBehalf.org. Everytime I get the word out about this organization my main point is what makes it unique. Not only was it started by veterans for veterans, but the director is very accessible to anyone visiting the website. Also,he, and the other founders are always involved as participants in fund raisers or working behind the scenes. It's a valuable 5 star asset to veterans and their families. M. Gifford senior

Not only am I a volunteer, I am also a "Client served". While going through my Army medical board process I was essentially hung out to dry financially. Speaking with the administrators I was able to get money that I needed to pay bills, repair my car and put food on the table. Now that things are evening out with the Army I find myself offering my time to this group helping people going through the Veterans Affairs system and medical board processes. Times are tough enough as is; nothing more needs to be added. It's a shame that the military and government which we swore to protect puts their veterans through the trauma of bureaucracy just to get basic needs and benefits met. Saying that, this group is testament to the human spirit of compassion and camaraderie.
