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 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 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.

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.

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!

Mike and the team organized a group to run the New Hampshire Tough Mudder in June 2013. Had the best day out and raised a bunch of money. The effort and commitment they put in is second to none. I'll be supporting them again in 2014 with other fundraising efforts!

I worked closely with Mike on his digital strategy/promotion. He not only is one of the most focused individuals I know, he is one of the most compassionate and driven. He truly believes in making a difference to those who need help. If you're going to donate your time, money or services, rest assured it is going to an individual in need.

I'm in New York and have seen the passion that Mike exhibits every day when he talks about and promotes OnBehalf. This is a fantastic organization where donors can rest assured their contributions are allocated wisely and volunteers see their time richly rewarded. As a vet I may not be the most "objective" on this topic, but please consider volunteering or donating and you will see just what a great cause this is.

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

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.
