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!!

My now-established Christmas tradition of giving TisBest gift cards to my children began as a great way to demonstrate to them my firm belief that "the best gifts are the ones we give!" Now, they all look forward to receiving TisBest gift cards, and I look forward to seeing which organizations they will choose for their donations. Very, very meaningful for all those involved.

A great opportunity. As a college student, it is easy to forget the world beyond the bounds of campus. This is a great way for my suitemates and I to nudge each other's perspectives during birthdays and at Christmas time.

When considering a gift last Christmas for my hairdresser, I was looking for something that would be meaningful. When I came across this organization, I thought it would be perfect since she could pick who to help. Instead of just giving to one person, the gift was helping more.

I started giving TisBest gift cards for Christmas presents a few years ago. I now have started giving them for wedding gifts. Everyone who has received them writes back to me with great appreciation.

We are seeing more and more TisBest cards being given as wedding gifts, and the responses have been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you for your generosity and support!

I gave Tisbest cards to my daughter's girl scout troop, for a lesson in charitable giving. The girls loved having a choice of where the money would go. I also give them to my book group as holiday gifts! What a great organization.

I starting giving TisBest cards as Christmas gifts a few years ago. Everyone always commented on much they appreciated the opportunity to donate to a charity of their choice (something that was very personal/meaningful to them). I also consistently heard how surprised people were when they went to the TisBest website and saw all of the organizations that need help. My husband and I got married in February of 2012. Rather than making a donation to a single charity of our choice (in lieu of wedding favors for the guests) we gave all of our guests TisBest cards. We couldn’t think of a more appropriate gift for all of our friends and family that helped us celebrate such a special day.
