CHARLOTTE, N.C. — November 13, 2018 — Amicus.io, an innovative provider of technology solutions for nonprofit financial services, today announced that it had been selected to provide the mobile and online donor fund management system to The Winnipeg Foundation, Canada’s first community foundation, holding more than $850 million in endowed funds.
The collaboration aims to provide a next-generation platform to donors and agency fund holders at the foundation, through a rich interface that gives users powerful fund management capabilities, while at the same time engaging with - and participating in - the causes and charities local to Winnipeg. The result is a modern, digital giving experience — enhancing donors’ relationship with The Winnipeg Foundation, and creating convenience, value, and affirmation for participants in the community foundation ecosystem.
“Meaningful philanthropy is local,” said Cornelis Hoekstra, CEO of Amicus.io. “Partnering with established, trusted organizations like The Winnipeg Foundation puts technology in the hands of modern donors, who want to personally direct their philanthropy to local causes most important to them. Using Amicus.io, The Winnipeg Foundation enhances its ability to match donors to areas of need, while continuing to serve the greater needs of the community.”
“We are excited about the options Amicus’ platform will bring to our donors and how this will enhance their experiences working with The Foundation; we look forward to working together with Amicus.io and the new, innovative technology on this next phase of their online experience,” said Rick Frost, CEO of The Winnipeg Foundation.
The Winnipeg Foundation, formed in 1921, is the first community foundation in Canada, and among the top five in terms of endowments. “This agreement marks the entry of Amicus.io into the Canadian market – a key strategic priority for Amicus.io as it begins its global expansion,” said Cornelis Hoekstra.
