In 2021, Toby Tyler first conceived of the charity box after visiting with the families who had recently lost loved ones. Each family had the same complaints: First, why couldn’t there be more than one guestbook so that any family member could look back on how their community came together on the toughest day of their lives. Second, why did the family of the deceased get stuck having to organize all the money collected and send it out. After all the planning and emotional exhaustion that goes into planning a funeral, why did that one detail have to linger?
With Charity Box, each member of the family gets sent a digital guestbook in PDF form so they can keep with them forever the people who were there when it counted most. Charity Box also solves the problem of organizing the giving. No matter who your families’ loved one wants to bless with their charity, Charity Box takes care of it all and your families get a report within a week of the service detailing how much was given and to what charities.
