TisBest's Mission

Fueling a movement to replace gifts of stuff with gifts of good that meaningfully connect individuals to important causes. TisBest: Give 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 300+ stellar charity partners. Curious who we support? We've carefully selected a broad spectrum of organizations so there's something for everyone.
