Stand-Up For Leadership, INC

About Us

Accountants One established the Stand-Up for Leadership Foundation exclusively for charitable purposes with a focus on supporting youth-serving nonprofit organizations.

"We believe in laughs for a good cause."

Each day, in any given corner of our country, hundreds of accountants make another person laugh. And it’s even usually intentional…

The Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant is a stand-up comedy show competition that was created to provide a platform to showcase the less celebrated comedic talents of our accountant friends and colleagues. Since 2006, Accountants One has proved that accountants are more than just number crunchers.

Proceeds from The Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant benefit Junior Achievement of Georgia, an organization with a mission to prepare and inspire young people to succeed in a global economy. To date, the event has raised nearly half a million dollars through our funny accountants.
