...It shouldn’t be hard to do good!

This is the battle cry that our entire company is based upon!

We’re in the business of serving heroes

We started with a simple idea - that paperwork and confusion shouldn’t stop you from making the world a better place.

When we began in 2012, starting a nonprofit organization and getting 501(c)3 Tax-Exempt Status had become too complicated, expensive, and time consuming. Many nonprofit founders were forced to give up before their dream saw the light of day. We have changed that forever!

Like you, we’re taking a stand to make the world a better place - that’s why our mission is to care about YOUR mission! Our technology is simple to use and we focus on the human touch. We understand what it takes because our team has been right where you are now. So come on - take one small step for a human (you)...one giant leap for humankind!


Meet your team

A great mission and purpose attracts the best people, and we have a diverse team of experienced nonprofit founders, consultants and thought leaders: Professionals who understand the nonprofit world and want to lift you over the many obstacles getting between you and your mission.

Christian LeFer
Chief Executive Officer
Christian has raised millions and run many successful campaigns during his decade-plus of fundraising and creating & marketing solutions to benefit the nonprofit sector. His mission is to empower heroes across the world to make an impact for good. His lifelong battles against Simon Bar Sinister led to expanding civil liberties and as a certified therapeutic foster and adoptive parent . When he's not swimming with his family, Christian might be found in Moab ahead of a cloud of dust trailing from his dirt bike.
Jacqui Long
Marketing & Operations
Jacquelyn Long runs our Marketing and Customer Experience, driving messaging and improving the customer experience. With a passion for human optimization, minimalism,  elevated consciousness and personal integrity, Jacqui brings an ethos to the business that serves everyone. When Jacqui isn't working, she can be found rocking Denver's Cheeseman Park 'hood, petting any dog in sight, or strapped into her snowboard and shredding the slopes of Loveland Pass in the deepest powder she can find.
Jack Harvey
Solutions Consultant
Jack Harvey recently graduated the Colorado School of Mines (go Jack!), and it is the goal of management at Yippiekiyay to undermine his pursuit of a Geology career so he can work (and yawn) year round instead of limiting himself to summer breaks at Yippiekiyay. He is as brilliant as he is in need of coffee and Twizzlers, and his penchant for helping people make the world a better place has earned him the love of our staff and customers alike. But if we run out of coffee, he may forget to enter the dates in all of the spreadsheets!
