Each year, the legions of people giving and receiving Charity Checks Giving Certificates grows. Click on the names to see what these people have to say.

As part of our pilot program in 2000, Scott Cook, a co-founder of Intuit, gave each of his Vice Presidents Giving Certificates as a year-end gift. In a 2004 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Brooks Fisher, who was one of those Vice Presidents, describes his experience as a recipient.

Today, Maura Raffensperger, who started Organizational Rx, raves about Giving Certificates for their efficiency. Holly Worthington, the Managing Director of a realty office in Washington, DC, gives them to her brokers and agents as a way to help them keep in touch with their community.

Bonnie Olsen, the manager of Buena Vista Hospice Care, is one of the many people who enjoyed receiving a Giving Certificate so much that now they give Giving Certificates themselves.

Actor Ed Begley, Jr., praises Giving Certificates for their environmental friendliness. Television personality Leeza Gibbons handed out Giving Certificates to her entire staff during her show in 2001.

Charity Checks are a gift giving solution with heart. No wrapping, no drama, and no returns, and especially this year [2001], we're looking for meaningful ways to express our love and appreciation. – Leeza Gibbons, Host, Extra

Giving Certificates are an environmentally friendly way of giving. You can give others gifts without a lot of wasteful wrapping and boxes. Instead you are giving them the gift of helping causes they care about. You can also give anonymously to the charities you care about without being put on mailing solicitation lists that waste valuable resources. But you still get a receipt for your tax records. In fact, Charity Checks give me just one receipt for lots of my charitable giving -- there is less paperwork. – Ed Begley, Jr., Actor
