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!!
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.
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.
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.
Awesome gift idea. It warmed my heart to receive the gift of giving.
I've given Tis Best gift cards for the past two Christmases and they have been enthusiastically welcomed by everyone I gave them to. Tis Best offers the best of all possible gifts -- both the opportunity to give to people you care for, and the opportunity for THEM to direct that gift to causes dear to their hearts. You can be sure that a Tis Best gift card is always "exactly what I wanted." It's one of the greatest ideas for giving I've ever seen.
Our company participates in a lot of tradeshows throughout the year. We always have a raffle for people to put their business cards in for the chance to be selected for a prize. In the past the giveaways have been Apple products, wine, etc. We decided to do something different this year and our giveaway was tisbest gift cards for the winner to donate to a charity of their choice. People love it! Tisbest has SO many charities in SO many categories. They are very easy to work with and I really like that we can customize the gift cards with our logo.
As an administrator for a large company we wanted to offer something more meaningful than flowers when an employee loses a loved one. Tis Best was the best option. They allow our gift to be spent in a fashion that would be meaningful to their loved one. It's a thoughtful, but simple way to show we care.
We love giving and receiving Tis Best gift certificates as gifts. It's become something both sides of our family participate in.

Thank you for your kind words and support, Julia. It truly means the world to us!
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!
