The Father Ray Foundation is a large charitable organization located in the Thai resort town of Pattaya.

The Foundation is named after its founder, Father Ray Brennan, an Irish-American catholic priest from Chicago.

In 1974 Father Ray accepted into his care an unwanted newborn baby. From that one act of kindness Father Ray went on to open residential facilities for children who were orphaned, victims of abuse and neglect, others who had been abandoned and children whose own families were to poor to provide them with the basics in life.

He also opened schools for deaf toddlers, blind and visually impaired school age children and a vocational training center for young adults living with a disability.


Father Ray died in 2003, and since then the Father Ray Foundation has not only continued the work he started, but has opened several new projects and doubling the number of children and students in our care.

Today the Foundation cares for and educates around 850 children and students at

We are also adding a GoFundMe section for personal causes you wish to raise funds for. Please visit the GoFundMe page for more information.

3. How much can I raise for my charity?

The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount. With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.

4. And it's free?

Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you. It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.

5. When will my charity receive the donation?

We pay charities 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.

7. How does CashBackGiver make money?

We donate or credit your cashback account 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the ongoing development of CashBackGiver, which is free to all charities and users. All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will be paid - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!

8. How do I redeem my cashback?

You can view the status of your cashback within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' over the course of a few months. Once your approved balance exceeds 1000 THB you can transfer to your bank account or payment provider account or if you’re feeling especially generous you may decide to donate some or all of it to your selected charity.
