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

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!!

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.

I bought a bunch of cards for my family members as a holiday gift. It was an easy process and they all seemed to like the idea. Unfortunately, a few of them never used the cards so I would not purchase these in the future.

Hi Pete! If your recipient doesn't spend their gift card, you can always do it yourself (your receipt gives you access to the unspent codes--let us know if you need another copy). If a card remains unspent for two years, the funds on that card slowly roll into our education budget. Those funds are used to support the TisBest Charity Gift Card system and specifically to support DiscoverGiving, TisBest’s classroom philanthropy project. Monies are used to provide free giving kits to select classrooms and to enhance all aspects of the DiscoverGiving program. Remember, TisBest is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all monies are spent carefully and effectively to make this unique charity gift card system possible, to encourage non-material gift-giving, and to support our charity partners. Thanks for using TisBest, and let us know if there's anything we can do to make the experience better for you in the future!

The TisBest charity cards are the most well received corporate gifts we've ever given. Our company has been sending these each year at the holidays for over 5 years. The best compliments I can receive is when a client tells me they now use TisBest cards in their corporate gift programs after learning about them from us.

TisBest offers great customer service and is always available to answer questions.

For the last several years I have been giving Tis Best cards to my clients during the holidays to thank them for their support and to show my appreciation of their business. I can't tell you how many nice e-mails and thank you notes I receive as a result. People are tired of gift baskets and company logo items and these charity cards are much appreciated. Many people tell me about the charities they support and how happy they are to be able to contribute in this way. I think it helps me stay connected to my clients on a more personal level and I can't imagine giving anything else!

We used tisbest.org for our corporate holiday gifts instead of the traditional gift baskets (or whatever), which was very well received by our clients, making this a no-brainer for every holiday gift going forward. In addition, we now use tisbest throughout the year as a regular part of our business! They worked with us to customize a program. Great people and a great organization!

TisBest is a fantastic alternative to just giving a gift item of some sort. The fact that a recipient can choose a charity that has meaning to them is very powerful and moving. This is a great concept and I use it regularly.

TisBest is THE BEST gift we have ever given our clients to thank them for their business. We always give something to our best clients at the end of the year to thank them. We were able to reinforce our brand by putting our logo on the TisBest cards and give our clients the opportunity to select the charity of their choice. It's way better than sending chocolates or some other item that won't be remembered. TisBest was super easy to work with and I loved getting the emails showing which charities our clients selected. We will continue to use TisBest for a standout way to thank our clients!

I customized cards and gave them out to the kids at my son's Bar Mitvah! I loved giving charity cards out, and the staff at tisbest was wonderful to work with.
