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/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.

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!!

I've used TisBest gift cards since I first learned of them several years ago. I've given them as fun and educational gifts to young cousins, to folks who "have it all" and find it fun to peruse the many charities, and to people who have a strong bond with one or two causes and feel empowered to give. TisBest is a wonderful, cause-driven organization that impacts over 300 charities around the world.
