About us
Who we are

Back in 2016, François, one of our two founders, was involved with many nonprofit organizations, helping them with the recruitment and management of volunteers.

He would often end up chatting with the directors about their challenges. The story of a director of a meals-on-wheels who was on the verge of getting fired by her board struck him.

This director had to rejuvenate their donors’ database to sustain the organization’s impact over years. To do so, she invested money to rebrand the website, make it perform better, and of course, to be more mobile-friendly so more donors could easily give online. It was a success, as they noticed more and more young people engaging with the organization.
 
Fast-forward to one year later, that’s when troubles began- older donors were concerned about the financial reports. “Why is there so much money invested in technology instead of delivering more help to the people in my community?” Those concerns made their way to the board members. They quickly turned their back on the director, accusing her of wasting donors’ money, when in fact, she was building towards a stronger long-term impact for the organization.

Francois discovered that day that the preconceived idea about charities wasting donors’ money is a dangerous myth. It is preventing them from accessing good technologies.
 
He discussed his challenges with his friend Thibaut and it was a wise move. Thibaut had heard about a platform in Europe working only on contributions. This could help so many nonprofits in Canada! That was the beginning of their partnership in the Simplyk adventure and the launch of the free platform.
 
Since then, Simplyk has grown over 6x every year and built a strong team of passionate developers, marketers, sales specialists, and designers.

If you ask them though, they’ll tell you that their greatest pride remains that they never charged a single dime to the thousands of organizations who are now using Simplyk.
