Every year, 30% of all charitable donations happen in December. Several factors play into this, including seasonal holiday giving and year-end tax-deductible donations to non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. This time of year, figuring out where to donate or what gifts to buy can make the holiday season even more stressful. TisBest Philanthropy offers the best of both worlds with a tax-deductible, charitable gift.

Meeting Your Clients’ Tax Deductible (and Charitable Gift) Needs
If you’re a financial advisor or certified accountant, you’ll want to help your clients find the right organization or Donor Advised Fund to make their contributions. This year especially, 39% of U.S. adults say they will likely donate to charity instead of giving a gift to a friend or colleague. Why not empower your clients to combine holiday gift-giving with a tax-deductible donation?
“Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been looking for the best way to distribute my money this year and this gives me the opportunity to honor the people in my life who can direct the funds.”
—Randy, TisBest Customer
At TisBest.org, anyone can purchase charity gift cards throughout the year and give them to friends or family right away or choose to give them later. For your business clients, TisBest also offers the ability to feature a favorite charity and brand the entire gift card spending experience. In either case, the purchase is tax-deductible because TisBest is a 501(c)3 in good standing with the IRS and rated Gold on Guidestar.
Make the Donation Now, Give Gifts Later
Work with your clients to find what amount works best for both their tax bracket and their giving needs. They can purchase any number of gift cards with a minimum card value of $10 each. After every purchase, TisBest sends an itemized receipt to the Charity Gift Card purchaser.
The tax-deductible donation happens when the Charity Gift Cards are purchased, but they can be given and redeemed anytime and never expire. Once “spent” by the giftee, 100% of the gift card value goes on to their charities of choice.
For business gifting needs, such as monthly Birthdays or annual Thank-You’s, our customers often stock up on cards in bulk. Clients can also schedule E-cards in advance to be delivered at a future date.
The Charity Gift Card Experience is Shared
Our list of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations is extensive at over 1.5 million. Featured charity categories include Health & Wellness, Human Rights, Animals, Environment, Veterans, Children, Education, and more. Website users can search by category, keyword, and location. Searching by zip code allows your giftees to find local charities right in their backyard!
