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.

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

I've given TisBest Charity Gift Cards for a variety of reasons: holidays, birthdays, weddings, hostess gifts. My friends have all the stuff they need, so a gift of charity is meaningful to them. But my friends also LOVE that they get to select the cause that's important to them.

Jon, your thoughts about giving cards to folks who already have all the "stuff" they need are right on. Thank you for sharing your experience!

This is a fantastic nonprofit. They created the Charity Gift Card, which is such a fantastic alternative to giving "more stuff" around the holidays and other gift giving times. Further, I am the founder of TisBest, so of course I love it! Erik Marks
