I have owned a small marketing agency for 18+ years. Around the holidays, I try to find unique gifts for my clients and my business partners that not only thank them for their business, but also do something to "give back" to the community. I came across the idea of charity gift cards, and I did considerable research to find what I believed to be the "best" resource. Charity On Top was awesome. They answered all my questions. They worked with me through every step of the process to create a batch of custom gift cards. I think it's great recipients may select from ANY registered nonprofit to make their donation, vs a specific list. This lets people truly give to any organization they support. Also, Charity on Top donates more of the money to the charities than the other companies, so I liked they fact they were truly doing "more" to help others. I received many emails, calls, texts...and even got a few hugs in person thanking me for the unique holiday gift. I plan to create another card and program for this holiday season, and I look forward to working with Charity On Top again!

We ordered gift cards for a couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, one for the wife and one for the husband.
When it looked like the cards were not going to arrive on time for the event, I called Kathy and told her our dilemma.
Kathy went out of her way to solve our problem. At her own time and expense, Kathy went to the post-office and "over-knighted" us another set of the same cards we had chosen!
We received the cards on time for the celebration. We are so thankful for Kathy. The couple were delighted with their gift! Eager to see which organizations they chose to donate to.

Charity on Top is a wonderful nonprofit that allows you to spread the gift of giving to so many different worthy causes. The founders are truly passionate about the product and helping others, and are some of the most sincere, heartfelt, and passionate people I've met. This product truly allows you to encourage giving to charity while still allowing for personalization in gift card design & charity chosen and is the perfect holiday gift!

Charity on Top is a game-changer: democratizing fundraising by empowering donors to give the gift of giving. What an ingenious solution! I look forward to seeing all they'll do with their innovative approach to philanthropy. And women-led to boot! They've helped me organize my personal giving and share the cause of charity with those I know and love - and even with strangers! For that I'm extremely grateful.

I have never worked with two start-up founders who are more determined to use their ingenuity to create good in the world. The concept of Charity on Top allows people help others by supporting the projects that speak to them. Charity on Top makes that vision so much easier for both those giving and those that wish to encourage that behavior.

Charity on Top is a great way to share your love of helping others. By giving a Charity on Top gift card, your recipient gets to select the non-profit of their choice to benefit from the donation. This is such a special and thoughtful gift that anyone would cherish receiving.

Kathy & Marchelle are a couple of the most dedicated individuals I have met in our industry over 20 years. Their passion for non-profits of all sizes is shown in the system they have built. They have taken the "Gift of Giving" to a whole new level.

This is such a wonderful idea as it promotes the gift of giving! For Christmas, I purchased customized cards with family pictures on them so that each member could select a charity of their choice and experience the joy of giving to others. My son was recently married, so his Charity on top card was customized with a picture of him with his dad and brother (which can now be saved as a keepsake). There are thousands of charities to choose from and the website is user-friendly.

I have known the founders, Kathy and Marchelle, for over 25 years and they have hearts as big as the sun. I hope many charities flourish as they remind us to put Charity On Top!

Terrific charity makes gift giving easy. You purchase a gift card, give it as a gift. The recipient chooses the charity that they like. And everybody feels good. A wonderful way to celebrate an occasion. Oh, did I mention that the customer service is terrific, and you can personalize the gift cards with any image you like.

Charity On Top is an ideas whose time has come: philanthropic gift cards! As a nonprofit consultant and a business advisor to other consultants, I've used their cards and recommend them to other consultants as holiday and thank you gifts.

I've also had them provide me with custom cards for my business. They did a fine job.

Our organization used Charity on Top to design custom gift cards that we decided to give to each participant attending our team building event. We wanted to make sure that each person received a swag bag and this was the most popular item! They definitely exceeded our expectations and everyone walked away with a gift that they could pay it forward. It was a great way to emphasize to our team the importance of community and giving back. Highly recommend this amazing non-profit for any individual or organization looking for ways to give back or to be better corporate citizens.

Ordered a set of custom charity gift cards to hand out as party favors for my baby shower last month. I was worried that they wouldn't arrive in time, but I spoke with Kathy S. at Charity on Top who reassured me I would have them for my shower. She was so kind and caring and loved that I was giving away charity gift cards as party favors! She even added an extra one just for me! Everybody at the shower loved the idea too and the favors were a huge hit! Thank you Kathy for helping make my baby shower perfect!
