Who We Are - Giving Back Association is a not-for-profit organization, registered as NGO number 5374/2557 on December 22, 2014 in Thailand, with the purpose of supporting charities in Thailand and the Region. We help individual and corporate donors to find information on charities and foundations in the Greater Mekong region that most fit their philanthropic goals as well as information on their governance, financial efficiency and transparency.
We aim to bring together in one location, information regarding all of the charities and non-profit groups that are non-political and not solely for religious purposes, that operate in Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. We aim to make it easy for you to find useful information on charities or non-profit groups that you would like to support. The more information available to the public on the charities, the more confident and informed donors can be in supporting them, increasing the overall support for well-run charities and non-profits.
As a donor may not be sure of how efficient and effective charities are in using the donated funds, we conduct charity visits to see their operations and discuss the details of their governance and financial efficiency with the management of the charities. We then publish detailed reviews and rate them on a 1-5 star basis.
We encourage all corporations and individuals to give back to their communities. There are a large number of charities and non profit groups in the community which perform outstanding social work. The persons managing these charities do so out of their own social commitment and often with no or little financial reward. Their reward is in their heart, which is the reward of helping others less fortunate than ourselves. They need our help.

5. When will my charity receive the donation?
We pay all qualifying charities who have requested payment once a month by Bank Transfer via our payment partner. You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
6. Where does the donation come from?
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission. We offer you the member the choice of having your share of the commision as a cashback or you can use this share of the commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.

We donate to your chosen cause or credit your cashback account 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% split between the distributor of the app to members [10%]; the agent for bringing us merchants [10%]; the national franchisee [10%] thus leaving 30% for Jaidee Services Co Ltd. used to fund the ongoing development of JaiDee App, which is free to all charities and users.
