Amicus.io is a fintech company on a mission to fundamentally change the way individuals, corporations, foundations, and governments engage in philanthropy by facilitating a digital transformation of the non-profit space.
Nearly three decades ago, Amicus.io co-founders Cor Hoekstra and Walt Ruloff worked together in supply chain and logistics. After a successful exit, the pair spoke with a representative from World Vision, who urged them to introduce technology into the nonprofit space. They asked themselves an ambitious question.
How can we introduce technology that would truly revolutionize and mobilize charitable capital, perhaps more importantly, bridge the gap between donors and charities? At the end of the day, everybody wants to give.
We envision a more generous world where everyone can be a philanthropist.
Cor and Walt, along with co-founder Paul Welsh, began to imagine how to reinforce a culture of generosity by providing a technology solution to mobilize charitable capital that is more inclusive, more accessible, and more impactful.
Realizing that this idea could fundamentally shift the philanthropic sector and individuals’ connection to generosity, they got to work.
What We Do
Amicus.io is an early stage fintech company that aligns the incentives of donors, financial institutions, corporations, and philanthropic organizations for charitable giving at scale—to grow a more generous world.
Amicus modernizes donor-advised funds (DAFs) for charitable giving to empower motivated donors of any size. Now, the average person can make a bigger impact. We leverage our DAF 2.0 technology to bridge communications and transparency gaps, thus fostering meaningful connections between donors and non-profits.
Founded in 2017, Amicus.io is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina with offices in Tel Aviv, Israel and Vancouver, Canada.
