Scott D. Krase
Scott Krase, Founder of one2one USA, and his family have been providing financial aid to individuals in need for a number of years. From these endeavors, he and his family learned firsthand how it felt to change someone’s life in such a direct way. The donees’ lives were immediately and positively impacted and at the same time, the power of the donation was witnessed and felt by his entire family. His involvement allowed him to establish personal connections with these individuals, enabling and encouraging them to provide ongoing aid where and when it helped the most.
Inspired by these personal experiences, he came up with the idea for one2one USA. His goal was to de-institutionalize charitable giving to make it more meaningful for the Donor and more effective for the donee. The vision was to create a charitable vehicle that facilitates grants to individuals in a manner that would be tax-deductible and completely transparent to the Donor so they could follow their funds, witness the impact to their donee and know how each dollar was spent. Of utmost importance, he wanted to help Donors best achieve their philanthropic goals and aspirations by pairing them with needy individuals who could benefit the most.
Our vision is to give countless Donors the ability to reach donees directly in personally relevant, meaningful and transparent ways.
