Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Philanthropy, Public Foundations

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/List-Of-Charities/

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 300 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.

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!!

Being in the senior care industry, we were thrilled to discover TisBest charity cards. They turned out to be highly effective as a marketing tool! They never fail to delight the recipient and everyone comments on how nice and memorable they are compared to the usual branded trinkets such as pens or magnets. We especially like that there is a wide selection of charities, literally hundreds to choose from, and the option of customized plastic cards.

We love to make a difference, for our company and our community. Therefore, to commemorate our employees one-year anniversaries we give them each a gift certificate from TisBest.org to donate to a charity that matters to them. Working with TisBest has been a pleasure and our employees would say the same.

Our company provides our employees with a quarterly bonus that they can donate towards a charity of their choice. Providing back to the causes our employees feel passionately about is one of our 9 values that we honor. Tisbest allows us to provide this opportunity to our employees in the most seamless way. Not only is their platform easy to use and navigate, but they're so helpful and quick in answering any questions and providing support.

Knowing how our employees charitable dollars will be used is as important as choosing the charity. TisBest allows our employees to choose a organization that means something to them as well as the added trust of where the dollars are going. We are super proud to work with TisBest for our charitable giving program across the U.S.

I have been giving TisBest Charity Gift Cards since 2007. They have become a quintessential stocking stuffer during the holidays and the perfect gift for coworkers. Beyond the incredibly cool concept, the staff is an absolute pleasure to talk to. They are consistently prompt in responding to any questions I may have and are always thorough in their answers. Overall one of my favorite gifts to both give and receive.

I have been using TisBest charity gift cards for the past couple of years. Doesn't matter the occasion, my friends and family are always excited to have a chance to donate to the charity of their choice! I absolutely love the concept and like that there is nothing else like it, these gift cards are truly a one of a kind, incredibly kind, and they help make the world a better place.

I love this idea! The fact that the gift recipient gets to choose charities of his or her choice is really unique. I have used Tisbest gift cards for the past few holiday seasons, and they are always well received.

Our company wanted to donate our swag budget to charity. Rick at TisBest was extremely helpful in holding our hand throughout the process, and being patient while we worked out many design ideas and possibilities. Rick was willing to accommodate whatever our design needs were while we were stuck for a month deciding between just receiving the codes to print out on our end, or acquiring plastic cards from TisBest.
Our event was well received, and helped boost company morale. Everyone loves feeling like they're part of something meaningful, that contributes to the needs of others.
The only hitch was that the website to redeem the cards felt slow and clunky, but we got used to it after a day. (Full disclosure, we design websites, and have offered to work with TisBest on upgrading theirs.)
All in all, this was a fantastic experience, and we plan to continue working with TisBest on future projects.
