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.

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!

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.

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

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.
