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 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.

The Giff has and continues to serve this great nation. His charity OnBehalf supports our fellow troops and their families when they need us most.

I met Mike when he lived in Chicago and was thinking to start this organization - in 2005!
The message of this organization is very powerful only because it comes from people who have lived experiences that many of us may never understand!

Mike was very passionate about creating an organization that can help and support veterans - these veterans are heros who have the courage to fight for their country and also for their families at home!

i can't believe that many of them are forgotten once they return - and moreover, many of them are not shown the love and respect they deserve for the rest of their lives!

These men and women deserve our support and OnBehalf.org is providing the opportunity for us to give them this support!

My VFW selected OnBehalf.org as one of the beneficiaries of our second annual Hole in One for Heroes charity golf tournament. From the moment they were notified, they jumped in to help us in any way they could. A website was set up and maintained for us, items were donated for the "goody bags," the founder's father drummed up bunches of sponsors we never would have been able to get on our own and worked tirelessly on our behalf, and both founder and father worked on the course the day of the tournament - all for our local veterans. We are just a small part of their network, but we are indebted for their energy, commitment and help. Our veterans are very fortunate to have OnBehalf on their side!

Mike saved my life in Iraq, and when I say saved my life, I mean he literally did! I believe that there is no better person to take action in such a great cause.
