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

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 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!

When I learned of Mike Gifford and the goals, methods, and work of Onbehalf.org I could not wait to compose this review of this unique and incredibly effective group. As the founder and President of my own veterans service non-profit, I understand acutely how the approach employed by Onbehalf.org - providing direct and immediate financial and material assistance - is precisely what the veterans community needs so badly. Too much of veterans assistance consists of a waiting game that expends time that a veteran simply does not have to spare. They are in immediate need, and immediate help is often the only thing that will save a veteran from a crisis from which he or she may not recover. Because I know both the crisis among veterans and the nature of veterans service structures in our nation, I can eagerly and proudly endorse Mike and the incredible efforts of Onbehlaf.org. Any individual interested in helping a veteran should donate to this organization - your money will go directly to helping a veteran in desperate need.
