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.

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.

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

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!

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!

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.
