Mission:

Fueling a movement to replace gifts of stuff with gifts of good that meaningfully connect individuals to important causes. TisBest: a better gift, a better world

Results:

TisBest Philanthropy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging others to give gifts of good, rather than gifts of stuff. We created charity gift cards to do just that. Charity gift cards work like conventional gift cards, but with one meaningful exception: the recipient "spends" the card by choosing which charity to support with the funds. Our charity gift cards are customizable and come in any amount between $10-$5,000. You can choose to send a 100% recycled plastic card by the mail, print a card at home on your own printer, or send an e-card directly to your gift recipient. We're passionate about getting others giving and raising awareness for our 250+ stellar charity partners. Curious who we support? We've carefully selected a broad spectrum of organizations so there's something for everyone. You can view our partners here: https://www.tisbest.org/Charities.aspx

Programs:

Tisbest philanthropy has diverted millions of gift dollars from being spent on "stuff" to being spent on charities chosen by gift recipients. Tisbest provides funds to over 250 charities throughout the united states. Tisbest charity gift cards are used by thousands of people to replace "stuff" when making gifts of all sorts, including holiday gifts, birthday gifts, mitzvah gifts, professional gifts, b2b gifts, conference gifts, recruiting gifts and many others. Tisbest empowers all those gift givers to use their dollars for good, rather than more stuff.

tisbest developed the discovergiving program in fiscal year 2013 and launched the program in october 2013. The tisbest materials in the kits were used by nearly 800 elementary students to encourage giving at an early age.

TisBest has hit upon a formula that really works wonders in so many ways. It has enabled me to "give the gift of giving" not only to show appreciation (teacher gifts) and honor (mother's day gifts) but also to use as a teaching tool (holiday gifts for my children, nieces, nephews, who then learn about philanthropy by choosing their own charities). The fact that TisBest has connected with such a great variety of charities makes it easy to know that no matter who I give a gift card to, she will find a charity that is meaningful to her.

I also love the feature of being able to upload your own photo for gift cards. A great way to give a teacher gift is to take a photo of your child with a sign saying "Thank you!", upload the photo, and order it for his teachers/school administrators. You can do the same for gifts to grandparents (with an "I love you!" sign). So many ways to be creative in gift giving with TisBest!

My family does charitable contributions instead of gifts for Christmas. Tisbest made it fun for my nephews to choose their giving. My mom emailed and called to make sure her donation was given to the correct place and was happy with the customer service. I recommend!!

This is such a fantastic concept. You give a gift, and the recipient gets to feed a hungry child, save some rainforest or even help cure cancer. What a way to put a smile on your gift recipient's face!

We have purchased several gift cards from tisbest for friends and teachers. Not only are they always well received, but the customer service is fantastic! The people at tisbest are always willing to help you troubleshoot and even go the extra mile to make sure that things go smoothly. The number and diversity of charities to choose from is outstanding! We will definitely continue to be loyal customers! I highly recommend tisbest to anyone who will listen! Keep up the great work guys!

Great concept! Great people to work with!
Probably need more staff to handle workload which is evident in responses to emails, etc.

This is a great site that allows you to donate to multiple charities, while also partnering with corporations for donations. Great set up!

I bought these charity gift cards for my nieces and nephews for Christmas who are in their late teens, early twenties. My oldest niece spent a lot of time choosing a charity and settled on a children's clean water network which looked great. I love the idea of them being able to pick their own. My other nieces and nephews didn't choose so after 2 months I chose for them. It was good that I was able to send gifts that were giving back and even though the others didn't take the time to search I was able to login to my account and put the money in a charity I liked. So it all worked great. I also like that you can see who has used it and when and they can even leave a thank you note for you.

TisBest is a wonderful way to gift the hard-to-buy-for people on my list. I like the way they can choose to whom the money goes. My sister was especially thrilled.

A wonderful gift giving solution for those that have everything. The photo gift card is especially personal. We have given cards to our friends and family and everyone loves the idea of giving to a charity of their choice. We will continue to use this wonderful service for gift giving. We highly recommend "Tisbest".
