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.

I manage an Employee Service Recognition Program for a large company with over 3000 employees in North America. TisBest worked diligently to set up a program our employees could use, they also helped us create local lists in some of our larger office areas. They have been a pleaseure to work with.

As the CSR Manager for a healthcare company we use TisBest cards as part of our giving program with our clients as well as at industry conferences. We have had nothing but great responses from those we gift with a TisBest card. The ability to give to so many various charities is very attractive component. The staff at TisBest is wonderful to work with on our various programs and they go out of their way to support our marketing and CSR activities.

I have both bought TisBest cards for giving and have worked with the leadership at this company to help develop certain aspects as they have grown. They are an exceptional organization and I recommend them often!

I first learned about TisBest several years ago. At the time, I loved the idea of a charity gift card. Simple. Meaningful. Powerful. Now that I've learned more about TisBest and have had the great pleasure of following their success, I know that the organization itself is second to none. They are dedicated to innovation, constantly iterating to make better and more creative use of their charity gift cards, from branded business cards (I have my own!) to corporate charity cards, the sky's the limit when it comes to the new ideas emanating from TisBest. They're true to their word and fully committed to what they do. Thumbs up all around!

The concept of giving someone a gift that helps others in place of material goods (that rarely get used) is truly revolutionary. It is absolutely perfect for teachers (do they really need one more apple mug?) and relatives (how many bottles of lavender body wash can sit unused in your cabinets?) and even best friends (maybe they've struggled with cancer and would appreciate the ability to support others!) You can customize the cards with your own pictures, but you leave the charity choice up to them! This was by far the best stocking stuffer I've ever received!
