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 friend and work colleague is one of the founding members, Mike Gifford. His commitment and work for OnBehalf is admirable and inspirational. I am proud to have been part of some activities like Run-A-Muck in 2011 and 2012, in Harriman, NY, plus being a donor. OnBehalf's work is a great service to those who've server the US. Thank you and God Bless.

Fantastic, dedicated and focused on the troops, this is an outfit that always has the their back, and agressively seeks out ways to help. As a vet I really appriciate the work ethic and hard charging positive attitude. Best way I know to help out those who served.

I am a former officer in the USAF (11 yrs). I and am always on the lookout for small, military focused charities that keep their operating expenses down and their operations transparent. Every step of my experience with OnBehalf.Org has been not only professional, but interactive and rewarding. With operational expenses totaling less than 10% it was difficult to justify giving to the larger organizations who expenses often run in the 75-90% range. There are very few charities in which the founders will interact with you, personally, and provide you a detailed understanding as to where your money goes and who it helps. OnBehalf's all volunteer founders do just that. Help keep these guys in business, they are the real deal!

On Behalf was able to help my husband and I during some of our worst days. He was medevac'd out of theatre with catastrophic injuries and was mishandled after a series of hospitals back to the base. I exhausted savings staying in a hotel with my husband to care for him, awaiting orders to come home on remote care. On Behalf, helped.. to the rescue really! These guys have a heart when nobody else did.. strongly recommend.

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

I couldn't thank this organization enough for the help of financial assistance given to me and my family when we needed it most! I was wounded in Afghanistan in Jan of 2009 while serving from 2008-2009 by a IED. I took shrapnel, burns, and permanently broken lower vertebra and tailbone, TBI, PTSD. From transitioning for active URL to medically retired without their assistance me and my family would have been in a very bad situation with myself, wife, and two kids. I am forever grateful for the assistance they've done for me and to know they'll be there if I ever need them again!

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!

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.

I have worked with these guys basically since the inception of their organization. I have never seen more dedicated individuals to helping their fellow comrades. I have worked with other organizations but have never ever been called or written personal notes or letters of gratitude. These guys are continuing to support our military men and families and I will stay with them until the last guy or girl needs help. This is truely a 5 star and if you had 10 I would give them 20. Thanks guys for all you do!

Just as Mike did, I am without a doubt rating OnBehalf with 5 Stars. We work hard to make life "a little easier" for wounded Veterans and their families, and could not do it without the amazing help from friends, family, supporters, donors, and volunteers. It is with great pleasure to give back to those who have given their all.

Of course I'm going to give us 5 stars, I'm the founder and director! In all seriousness, we're honored you've worked with us as a contributor, donor or volunteer, and we're humbled by the courage and sacrifices of the wounded veterans we've helped. Thanks in advance for your review here on GreatNonprofits, and helping OnBehalf in their mission of assisting our injured vets from Iraq & Afghanistan. All the best, Mike Gifford
