About Us

Our Story

Firespring doesn't just work with the nonprofit industry, we consider it our home.

Firespring staff Sage Jensen volunteering at Habitat for Humanity.

Nearly 20 years ago, we started offering integrated marketing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses across the country. But, it didn’t take long for our founder and CEO, Jay Wilkinson, to recognize that nonprofits could benefit greatly from our services. Having been active in the nonprofit community for most of his life, Jay made a steadfast commitment to help nonprofit organizations reach their goals.

Now, with over 200 employees, Firespring provides nonprofits with beautifully functional websites and all the tools they need to thrive, from donation processing to social media. Each person who works at Firespring is fully dedicated not just to his or her job, but also to making the world a better place.   

Personal Involvement

We’re proud to say that we’re the first Certified B Corp in the state of Nebraska. We contribute significant amounts of our time, money and technology to advance important causes through personal service in our community, investments in educational programs and grants for nonprofits and the development of powerful tools that allow organizations to increase efficiency, raise more funds and build support. As a B Corp, we leverage our people, products and profit as a force for good.

We love to give back to the community. In fact, every Firespring employee gets one day off each month, with pay, to volunteer for a nonprofit. Here are just a few of the organizations we support:
