A Mission-Driven Organization

VitalSmarts has impacted millions of lives. We love contributing to our client’s successes, which is reflected in our impact on their corporate cultures and bottom lines.

We also strive to extend our unique mission to the nonprofit sector, where there is significant opportunity to help change the world for good. These efforts take several forms:

Influencer Institute

In 2011, VitalSmarts’ founders launched a nonprofit organization to carry our mission even further into the social sector. Thus was born the Influencer Institute—a nonprofit, private operating foundation. The Institute operates like a boutique consulting firm and provides a permanent, strategic home for a select range of projects that leverage VitalSmarts’ training programs to enable the social sector to better influence human behavior.




Certified Trainer License Extension

Through this program, VitalSmarts’ client network of certified trainers may offer VitalSmarts training to nonprofit organizations in their communities. The trainers donate their time and VitalSmarts provides materials at a significantly reduced cost.

Not-For-Profit Training Grant Program

VitalSmarts certified trainers may apply for a training grant in cases where a local nonprofit organization stands to benefit from training but has no means to afford it, even at reduced cost. Administered by the Influencer Institute, the program awards grants of training materials on a needs basis from a fixed annual allocation.

Responsible Corporate Citizenship

VitalSmarts seeks to model good corporate citizenship in our community—beautiful Provo, Utah, and its surrounding areas. As an organization, we provide in-kind donations to various charities and fundraisers. The VitalSmarts Mission Committee coordinates employee involvement in various initiatives, including:

  • The Rex Lee Run—a Utah Valley tradition supporting cancer research and awareness.
  • Day of Caring, Date Night, and Sub-for-Santa—partnership initiatives with United Way of Utah County, each designed to strengthen our community and the nonprofit organizations that make it a better place.
