TisBest Charity Gift Cards

Tips and Resources

Yesterday, I attended a Corporate Volunteering seminar with Chris Jarvis from Realized Worth. It was very insightful and I took away many new facts and ideas. One of the best things from the conference was meeting Jon Siegel and Chad Edwards and learning about their non profit called TisBest Philanthropy. TisBest has created Charity Gift Cards. I was so excited to hear about their idea and thrilled to be able to share it with others.

The idea behind these gift cards is that instead of giving someone more stuff the giver purchases a gift card for family, friends, clients or others and the recipient decides where to donate it. There are currently 250 national nonprofit organizations affiliated with TisBestPhilanthropy and they are working to continue expanding their local organizations as well. Each charity is chosen because it demonstrates leadership, efficiency, success and innovation in its programs.

Cards can be printed, emailed or produced on 100% recycled plastic cards. They would make awesome thank you gifts and could be fun for a bat mitzvah or wedding favors.
