Issues: Philanthropy

Location: 17962 Midvale Ave N Suite 240 Shoreline WA 98133 USA

Mission: Fueling a movement to replace gifts of stuff with gifts of good that meaningfully connect individuals to important causes. TisBest: Give 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

As a teacher participating in Secret Snowmen gift giving, having this organization available from which to order a gift card is the best way to appreciate a peer on the staff in my school. While I am giving a gift, it does not have to be to the charity of my choice, by allows the recipient not only to see many valuable charities, but also to make his/her own selection. The emblem on the card that I can put in a big box is always so perfect as a greeting!

I love gifting with Tisbest cards, and those who receive them like to tell me what charities they chose. There are many people we want to recognize at gift giving times who don't necessarily have many needs (especially as we get older). The added bonus is that you can put one of your own photos on the card, and we have a lot of fun with that. :)

Every year I look for a sustainable, distributed, online way to express my gratitude to my business colleagues at the end of the year. Tis Best has always been there for that. I can share a gift across the world and my colleagues and friends are always grateful that they can contribute something at a time when not everyone thinks about charitable contribution during the stress of the season. I will continue to use Tis Best and may expand to my family for the "goodness" that it brings.

I give TisBest gift cards every year at holiday time to my adult nieces and nephews. And they love having the opportunity to pick the charity to receive the gift. I also feel TisBest is a great way for young people to learn how important philanthropic giving is. TisBest has always been very helpful in providing this service for me. I'm so glad to have found this service.

I thought giving TisBest gift cards was a good idea, and when I received the recipients' heartfelt thanks I knew it was a great idea. It's so easy to purchase gift cards, and when I've had to ask a question the response is quick and clear. I've recommended TisBest to many people.

Last year, I was searching for the perfect client gift and found TisBest. Jon was outstanding in terms of helping us through the process. The response we received from clients was overwhelming. One client noted that he wished all of his service providers would do what we did at the holidays - remember others less fortunate than we all are. It was a grand slam in terms of a positive impact on our clients, and I've decided that we'll use TisBest each year for our corporate gift-giving. It really felt great to give clients a meaningful gift they enjoyed and that benefited others.

For Christmas, 2011, I wanted to get away from the excessive commercialism of holiday gift giving. It's hard to know if a gift you select for someone is needed or even wanted. TisBest was the solution. They present a very wide variety of charities which have been "vetted" and are described and catalogued for easy researching. All of the people to whom I sent a TisBest gift certificate were delighted with the concept and the opportunity to make their own choice of a charity to support. It feels good to give where there is real need.

Since I have known about TisBest Philanthropy I have purchased numerous gift cards for numerous occasions and have ALWAYS received good feedback. I love giving and giving something that gives more is even better! My friends and family feel the same way. This one of my favorite presents to give. I am getting ready to do my Christmas shopping in a couple of weeks also.
