I have nothing but amazing things to say about how On Behalf has helped me and my family with their monetary grant. My wife and I are blessed with these gorgeous identical twins, and my wife seeing the fiscal struggle it has been putting me in every month went looking for someone that could help. She quickly found this wonderful and honest organization and began working with the kind their staff. All without my knowledge, until one morning recently I saw an email with a monetary grant. No matter what the amount, every cent counts when I spend $300 on formula alone for two hungry 4 1/2 month old rug rats. This money allievated the stress for 2 months so that I may save in the interim and feel as if I am not drowning again.Thank you for the life preserver!!! God bless and I can not thank you enough for the help you have given my family.
My Family and I received your generous financial assistance.
Jut want to says thank you and may the Lord continue to Bless OnBehalf.
Thank you so much,
Thank you for caring and helping in rough times like this.
It is not easy to find assistances or to ask for monetary assistances while waiting for FEDGOV to kick in. The CORONA Virus affected us financially
And all through out, Mike and OnBehalf has helped us with so much respect and with great degree of dignity. Mil Gracias Mike. We got your Very generous Donation.
Thank you again.
OnBehalf is one of the few organizations that actually helps and look out for Veterans when they are in need.
other organizations have a lot of red tapes, to weed out most (if not all) Veterans. OhBehalf doesn't do that.
thank you so much.
My family and I want to express our gratitude to OnBehalf and Mike for their very generous Support
As an OIF Veteran appreciate your commitment to assisting All of us in distressful times like these (COVID-19) 2020.
From our hearts we send a hug and a big Thank you.
I needed help with a move due to my VA compensation being erratic and Onbehalf stepped right up and swooped in to help me. I’m a single parent and 100% service connected combat veteran and I was really starting to panic so having this resource and the easiest possible experience of getting help was truly a God send. I also had a friend who just received help from Onbehalf as well and it was a lifeline for him even more than it was for me. I hope any potential donors see this post and will consider giving to this very worthy cause, you can be sure your genorsity does make a huge difference in the lives of wounded veterans.
If we could rate this organization higher than 5 stars, we definitely would. In a desperate time of need, On Behalf was waiting with open arms to our family. With the added stressors piling up, life seemed like moving mountains would take longer than the time we had. On Behalf was there to pay attention to our family, our unique story, and empathetically and proactively provided a way for my family to finally breathe a little. Life stress just then, became more of a mole-hill making it easier to see the horizon. Thank you to On Behalf for changing our lives and giving us such an invaluable gift. Your time and efforts were life-impacting, and will never be forgotten.
I had major service connection injury and this organization was my life line. OnBeHalf have assisted my family in dire straights. Thank you
We can't thank OnBehalf enough! These wonderful folks helped us when our unexpectedly high utility bill completely overwhelmed our monthly budget. You helped us take care of something that would have set us back for months.
My family and I lost a great deal in the historic flooding of Baton Rouge , Louisiana. As a veteran of three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, I contacted on behalf.org for help with disaster assistance. On behalf contacted me and walked through the process to get assistance. Everything worked out and assistance was given. To me on behalf is a great organization for veterans and their families. Thank you guys for everything you do.
I have known Mike for many years and consider him to be a man of integrity. I helped raise funds for OnBehalf.Org by running the 2013 Boston Tough Mudder with Team OnBehalf.Org, have donated every year since and will continue to do so in the future.
Vets need all the support they can get, but more often than not, they don't get it! OnBehalf fills in the gaps whenever called on to do what they can to help their fellow brothers and sisters. I continue to support and donate to this tremendous organization...please consider doing the same.
So many vets in need, not enough financial or physical support to go around!! It doesn't take a lot to make a big difference in their lives and OnBehalf realizes that. But, they need your help to accommodate the hundreds of requests they receive! Please consider a contribution of time, services or cash in order to allow this wonderful organization to support the many military men, women and families looking for assistance. OnBehalf is smaller than other charitable organizations for veterans but they're still making a huge difference.....you can too!!
It's nice to know that over 90% of any donations are actually used to meet the needs of Iraq War veterans. Mike donates his own time to make that happen. Larger charities usually have huge expenses so supporting smaller non-profits can make donations go further. Thanks, Mike Gifford.
Why should I give you a rating. I am a disabled veteran who came to you for help and you sent me to other organization who wouldn't help either. I love the term hold your hand out and others will help....NOT. It's more like I get mine bite off. So I am done asking and will continue trying to do this on my own like I have.
Thanks man, instead of reading on our website who we can and who we can't help, you leave a review that may hinder our efforts to attract volunteers and donors, and the vets we CAN help will suffer for it. Well done. And I'm pretty sure I remember emailing you. If you want to lash out at the world, go right ahead, just spare those who run a nonprofit and raise money in their spare time, often disappointed and heartbroken they can't help everyone who comes there way. Thanks again for slamming us and making a dent in our ability to help others, others who are ten times more gracious than you could ever hope to be. And that's from one veteran to another.
These folks do amazing work on a shoestring, so I know my donations are going where they should!
This organization was unlike any other I’ve experienced. As a combat veteran I have a hard time asking for help, but onbehalf made it feel like a hand up rather than a handout. The Director, Jennifer was there to personally look at my issues and treated me like family. She even said she would help me with more resources. This place is the real deal and I will never forget what they did for me. Thank you onbehalf
This is a great organization! That actually helps Veterans in need. I highly recommend it.
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!
I'm an OIF Veteran who gladly served for over 8 years with a medical discharge from BAMC. OnBehalf is a very special to us Veterans.
They are very prompt and willing to answer the call to serve and help those who served. I will never forget them. I asked other organizations for assistance last, OnBehalf was the only ones who actually assisted me.
Thank you very much.
OnBehalf is absolutely doing the Veterans a great service. One of the few legitimate organizations out there with great deal of honesty and kindness.
In one of my darkest moments Mr. Gifford wrote back to me and with kind words of comfort help my family and I.
Thanks a million OnBehalf.
These wonder people, especially Jennifer, helped me SO much. I'm a 100% disabled Veteran and my vehicle was about to be repossessed. They helped me financially and now I'm current on all of my bills; for the first time in over a year. I couldn't be more grateful. Thank you all for your speediness and courteousness. It's so appreciated!!!
OnBehalf.Org is an amazing nonprofit! Mr. Gifford was beyond kind and professional. He helped our family with our bills when we needed it the most. We are so grateful and hope to give back to a wonderful organization. Thank you, OnBehalf.Org!!!
I had an unfortunate situation with the VA and didn't receive my benefits. On behalf was able to provide assistance within 48 hours which took a load off of me.
I was honestly at the end of my rope, I got out of the military, had a terrible divorce, couldn't hold a job down, and honestly was looking down the barrel of the gun, OnBehalf got me in contact with the VA to help my suicidal depression stemming from when I was injured in Afghanistan, they even helped me so I would have a place to live so I wouldn't be homeless, this is an amazing foundation doing amazing work for veterans.
My husband is a disabled vet whom lost his left leg and suffered multiple other injuries. We recently ran into a few set backs in life that left us worried. I nominated my husband to get help from onbehalf.org. I got a reponse right away. They are very kind... I got the feeling that they truly care about the soldiers and not just doing it for publicity. After speaking with them they did not have me jump through hoops and very fast they had a payment to go towards our mortgage and I am truly grateful for that. We need more organizations to be this way. Thank you
OnBehalf.org is a highly rated organization that is dedicated to helping veterans in whatever way they need assistance. From a donor perspective, they are personable and immediately responsive to questions, with personal emails directly from Mike. Our veterans deserve so much more than they are getting, and OnBehalf.org is making a huge difference in veterans' lives. I'm thrilled to be a monthly donor!
Strong leadership matched by the wonderful services they provided veterans & their families. I will continue to support OnBehalf.org because I believe in the work that they do. They are all heroes in my book.
Anytime one of our clients are in dire need of financial help, OnBehalf has responded with a sense of urgency unlike any other state or federal program. OnBegalf is our go to partner and we are proud to endorse them because they make sure the Veterans they serve are their #1 priority.
I have to admit to a bit of bias since I've known Mike all his life and I know the integrity and the sincerity behind this mission. But it also takes personal time and lots of energy with frustrations to ultimately cause that support, assist, or even just a recognition to the person who offered themselves to the possibility of so many terrible scenarios. Their family also may have paid a dear price. Now that they are civilians, do we owe them nothing?
You can trust that anything you offer will be treated with the same focus that was needed during his service. Accident and injury can befall anyone but these were not accidents, these were choices thoughtfully made by ordinary people who suddenly became extraordinary.
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.
Me and my family was going threw several really hard times for a period of almost a year and the guys at onbehalf took great care of us on a few diffrent occasions whether it was a Walmart card or money for bills they where always there to help god bless you for what you do!!! Chad C
Unfortunately Veterans sometimes do not get the care that they are entitled to and deserve. OnBehalf.org was created to fill those gaps, and to assist those in need when other programs fall short. It is an excellent resource for Veterans to obtain assistance, a place where volunteers can liaison and come together to fulfill a common goal, and where financial donors can be confident that their contributions are actually reaching the Veteran.
My family and I got behind on Utilities because of the slowness of the VA processing my claim. OnBehalf stepped up and quickly paid our whole electric bill before it was shut off. Thank You to OnBehalf for helping us in our time of need.
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.
As a social worker with the VA, we get many requests and the need to support our OEF/OIF Veteran's and families are great. OnBehalf.org has been generous and the assistance allows Veterans to be able to focus on "getting better" without the stress of financial obligations effecting their abilities to truly concentrate on themselves. Our Veteran's truly appreciate the help from OnBehalf.org and express how they want to give back once they are able to move forward. We encourage them to do so, because it in turn helps another Veteran (and family) in the end!
Thanks Mike for your assistance...once again! God Bless you and your organization!!!! Angela
Mike Gifford ang OnBehalf.org were able to help me and my family when we were strugling after my wife was unable to find a job. I'm 100% percent OIF/OEF disabled veteran. Thanks to their generosity we were able move forward when everything was falling on top of us.
I’m an OIF and OEF disabled Veteran and Mike and his wonderful organization was able to help my family and me during a very stressful situation. Thank you Mike for everything that you are doing for those of us in needs of assistance, you are a wonderful person.
Even Though they it was last minuet for me the help they sent was good enough to help me out towards my rent I am very grateful from the bottom of my heart.
Miguel De Leon
This organization headed by Mr Gifford is incredible and professional in every sense. I have reached out TWICE to them and TWICE I have been fortunate to receive assistance that provided my family and I the help we needed, when we needed it . Organizations like Onbehalf.org are truly one of a kind and a true testament to the efforts and help they offer. this organization helped me to finish the police academy by providing the assistance they did. As anew Iraq vet and police officer I am ana always will be eternally grateful to them and Mr. Gifford.
Just have to say Thank You to Onbehalf.Org for helping my family and I during a stressful financial situation. We still have a few things to work through with our vehicles but things are looking up.
On Behalf helped us with grocery money and my electric bill payment. we are very grateful for this organization and the assistance they provide for veterans. What a kind group of people. Many thanks!
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 left my job for medical reasons to receive treatment for ptsd and tbi which led to severe financial difficulties. OnBehalf's organization responded promptly to my request and in no time I was given a grant which helped me tremendously.
We were going through a really rough patch.Almost homeless.Our only vehicle broke down,my veterancouldnt get to work and he tried getting his benefits with out much luck because our VA was so backlogged they are still working on old cases first.He even called to find out out what to do if we wound up homeless.I heard about a few sights and called around in desperation knowing our 5 year old had to be somewhere soon for school.Mike jumped on it and was emailing nd calling to check up on us and making sure we were hanging on there.He worked so fast at trying to help.It was getting him what he needed on my end that took a little longer.But he stuck through and we were granted a check for $2000.to get a vehicleand rent a place and my husband could go back to work!These people really do care about the well.being of not only the veteran, but also the family as a whole.And I have never had someone really understand until I spoke with Mike.He really cares.I hope that more will donate to them so they can keep helping.I can tell you the money really gets used to help the families living hard struggles.And they also keep in touch with other non profits to help even further.This organization truly has a passion for those that have served and after they are home many don't see or understand the struggles are so different.Life can be so hard on these families.Its sometimes easier when someone gets out of jail and goes back into civilion life.They have had a different life defending our country so day to day life can sometimes be to much for someone that was turned into a soldier. We often forget that.Thanks again Mike and everyone else at on behalf.You saved us from a big fall.
I am thanking God up above for making people care about the job we have done and will continue to do if we could. They have the utmost respect for the military and they treated me like a Soldier. Since I have been injured from Iraq, I have suffered a great deal of hardship due to financial burden from hospital issue and divorce. I almost went homeless if it had not been for onbehalf helping me pay the rest of my rent that I was short. I am still struggling and barely have food to eat, but I have a place to lay my head and still feel I have some sort of stability. Thanking each and everyone of the volunteers and donors for their generous donations and prayers. God knows I am so grateful for this program, I clearly feel they saved my life.
Thank you so much, Retired Army SGT Ford, Tracey
What an honest stand up hardworking non profit. I can't thank you enough for helping us during our time of need. I pray you guys can get as many donations and sponsors because you stand behind your mission and not only help the families, but are so kind. Mike, was awesome to deal with. Thank you so much for all your help and donation to us.
My family experience a series of unfortunate events that ended with a family member passing and theoonly car we had completely dying on us the mechanics said it would cost nearly $4000 to fix we had no clue what we were going to do. Onbehalf came in and saved us with there donation of $1000 dollars no it was not enough to fix the car but it did help put us in a position where we had a buffer to provide for our family and at least start the process to fix the car. Our car is now fixed and we our in the process of trying to find another one thank you onbehalf.
Thank you for the gift card to K-Mart. It help put food in my home and get things I needed around the house. My son and I thank you Mike and Bob for all your help.
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!
Mike is a veteran that continues to serve his country by helping wounded vets! His passion and dedication is what makes OnBehalf possible, and successful. A very worthy cause!
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.
This organization helped me out when the help was truly needed. This is one organization thet cares about veterans and does not make them feel worse for asking for help. If you are in the tough spot, contact them, they will help.
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.
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!
I have been a volunteer for over a year and the passion that Mike and his team have is contagious and wonderful. They do everything possible to help veterans and their families as well as providing volunteers with important information. I am honored to be a part of this organization and know that I am making a difference while having the support of a great administrative team!
I am a volunteer with this organization and I have the pleasure of doing work I never thought possible and I know I am making a difference. The founder of this organization are amazing men who are humble and passionate about caring for our nation's veterans in any way possible. Thank you so much for what you are doing and this opportunity!
The pride Mike and his team take in supporting our veterans is amazing. I'm proud to be a supporter of such an outstanding organization. Keep up the great work.
I was referred to Mike and the OnBehalf.org team via my VA advocate. I'm a Marine veteran with a combat deployment to Afghanistan. After spending the last 25 months fighting for multiple claims with the VA and mounting financial obligations, Mike was able to provide the help I needed to keep fighting through very trying times. I highly recommend this organization to anyone in need or those willing to help them! Thank you OnBehalf.org!
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.

I am a veteran with a service-connected spinal cord injury who was pending to be discharged from the U.S. Army National Guard. Because of my Physical Evaluation Board, whether to be placed on orders, this kept me from seeking permanent employment. Also, it kept me from attending annual training 2013 so I had fallen behind on my monthly obligations. Director Mike Gifford not only has helped a soldier who was running out of options, but a soldier who situation was out of his control. I am very thankful to the Onbehalf organization and will support what they do because every veteran requires assistance in that outgoing process from military to civilian life!
