A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FIRESPRING FOUNDATION —
Firespring Foundation began in 2007 with a mission to empower nonprofits to leverage their mission for good.
Funding for Firespring Foundation comes from Firespring, a Nebraska-based company with a purpose to leverage their people, products and profit as a force for good. Firespring knows its impact can be magnified through the clients they serve and in the communities they support.
Firespring sets high standards for their philanthropic endeavors and validates these efforts through impartial third-party audits. These high standards include Certified B Corp status through B Lab, measuring social and environmental performance through the B Impact Assessment.
Firespring's self-imposed standards are embodied in their Power of 3 program. Through this initiative, Firespring gives 1% of their profit, 2% of their products and 3% of their people to worthy causes.
1% of their Profit
Firespring gives 1% of their profit to make a difference in communities throughout the world. By inspiring their team, clients and peer organizations, Firespring shows how corporate success can and should be measured by the impact it makes in people’s lives.
2% of their Product
