2020 Giving Report
Dear Friend,

We began 2020 with existing crises of structural racism, inequality, climate change, and a weakened democracy. And on top of that we struggled through the COVID-19 pandemic, the lives it stole too soon, its deeply unequal economic impacts, the public grief and rage in the battle for racial justice, and the most contentious election in recent history.

In this time of compounding crises, folks all across the country reached out to their neighbors for a hand. And everyday, beyond the headlines, we saw thousands of neighbors reach back to lift each other up with love and great empathy. We know that in times like these, the people we turn to for help most often are our neighbors. It makes sense, doesn't it? They’re the friendly, familiar faces we see everyday in the places we call home. In times of darkness, we know one thing: we can always rely on our neighbors to lift us up.
More people than ever before fundraised for a community project with ioby last year. Thousands of neighbors worked on 477 projects across the country, and raised over $5.4 million from 22,000 local donors—that’s triple the amount raised in 2019.
Residents crowdfunded in response to the impacts of COVID-19, including $1.1 million for mutual aid networks to ensure that basic needs were met; for projects that encouraged future voters and fed current ones; to train community members to run for office; and to offer love letters and free therapy to Black people in the midst of an uprising for racial justice.

I’m proud that ioby was able to provide adapted resources and the flexible support that neighbors needed in 2020. Our work was a culmination of more than a decade of preparation, working alongside neighbors to strengthen ties and grow our collective civic muscles; it served as an affirmation of the abiding power of our neighborhoods. When our communities needed a hand most, neighbors—and ioby—were right there.

ioby’s 2020 Giving Report is a moment to pause and reflect on the heroic efforts of our neighbors, to take stock, and to resolve to continue caring for our communities. The challenges of 2020 aren’t yet behind us, but thanks to your support ioby is continuing our essential work.
With immense gratitude, Erin Barnes signature Erin Barnes

Making change with ioby
ioby is about more than just crowdfunding. We're growing a movement of community-led positive change. ioby gives local changemakers the tools and resources they need, like one-on-one coaching, fiscal sponsorship, and opportunities to connect and build real, lasting impact from the ground up. Our crowdfunding platform helps connect leaders with support to raise the money they need from within their communities to make our neighborhoods healthier, greener, more livable, and more just.

ioby stands for “in our backyards,” but it also stands for taking care of each other, for flexing our collective civic muscles, and for trusting our neighbors to know what’s best for their neighborhood.
ioby mobilizes neighbors who have good ideas to become powerful civic leaders who plan, fund, and make positive change in their own neighborhoods.
Crowdfunding with ioby is different.
Here's how it works.
You have an idea
A resident leader has an awesome idea, but needs money, volunteers, or other support to make it happen.
We'll back you up
We offer crowdfunding strategies that work, help leaders create a plan that fits their goals, and build a fundraising page that tells their story. Action Strategists offer on-the-ground support in places of focus, and every leader gets a Leader Success Strategist to back them up.
Get donations and volunteers
Folks in the community can learn about the project, give tax-deductible donations, and sign up to volunteer on any ioby campaign page.
A Focus on Fiscal Sponsorship
Fiscal sponsorship is one of the powerful services ioby offers to help grassroots leaders collect tax-deductible donations and access unrestricted funding—reducing funding barriers empowers leaders to claim a seat at the decision-making table and tap resources they might not be able to otherwise. This was uniquely powerful in 2020 as mutual aid and grassroots groups turned to crowdfunding to gain immediate access to funding for their COVID-19 relief efforts.
ioby has your back
Throughout a leader’s crowdfunding campaign journey, we share tips and strategies to help hit fundraising milestones and reach goals. When leaders get stuck, we help them get unstuck by offering a rich library of free resources that includes downloadable guides, toolkits, and webinars with expert advice.
Bringing it to life
Once a campaign reaches their goal, we send funding directly to the leader so they can build their project with the community, on their own timeline.
Each campaign with ioby is unique, but the same basic ingredients go into every successful project. We’ve honed these tools over the years and based our model for neighbor-led success around them because they work well, and they help neighbors build the skills they need to take bigger and bigger steps in civic leadership.
“A huge value out of ioby has been the fact that were able to get a crowdfunding platform up on ioby's website way, way faster than we could ever get a grant application out. I think we had raised at least $10,000 if not $20,000 on ioby before we even turned in our first grant application, and the days and weeks really mattered at that crisis moment.”
— Frank Fredericks, Astoria Mutual Aid Network
Meeting the moment
At ioby, 87% of those we serve are from the grassroots and deep roots. They are the folks on the block who know their communities well and have great ideas for tackling their challenges, but who oftentimes don’t have the funding they need.
The deep roots
Annual Budget <$25K
Rarely have paid staff, 501(c)3 status, or existing donor base.
Traditionally known as “the grassroots”
Annual Budget $25K - $2 million
Typically have paid staff, have 501(c)3 status, some have existing donor base.
Large mission—driven organizations
Annual Budget >$2 million
Typically these are regional or national organizations, or coalitions of local organizations.
As COVID-19 presented new and intensified problems, those same neighbors took a look around and saw powerful solutions. ioby was uniquely able to step up and help them take action quickly. ioby’s powerful platform and wrap-around service model lets neighbors move at their own speed by design, unbound by grant cycles or restricted funding. This model allowed mutual aid groups to start projects and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars within weeks to purchase groceries for neighbors reeling from sudden unemployment, and offer speedy deliveries to elders and other vulnerable community members.
Our deep well of experience working with grassroots and deep roots groups helped us identify organizers’ needs quickly. So, at the onset of the pandemic in March, we moved to waive fiscal sponsorship fees on all COVID-19 relief projects, and, we were able to pivot to offer regular, weekly funding disbursements for a limited number of mutual aid groups, so that they could access cash instantly rather than pause relief efforts waiting for funding to materialize. ioby’s Action Strategists and Leader Success coaches offered one-on-one support to help neighbors organize new projects and adjust plans to meet the new demands of the year. Where people might have fallen through the cracks, neighbors were there to catch them, and ioby was there to back them up.
The Clinton Hill Fort Greene Mutual Aid group has raised over $88,000 on ioby to organize a coalition of neighbors to offer food, care, and support through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
In June, as the national uprising demanding justice for Black lives grew in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, ioby’s services swiftly adjusted to meet the moment once again. Drawing on our commitment to anti-racism, we enhanced our 2018 Racial Justice Toolkit, used our platform to amplify Black-led projects, and offered webinars like “Racial Equity in Creative Placemaking” and “Right of Way: Organizing for equitable, walkable communities.”

Last year we listened to our neighbors who stepped up and met the moment, and our neighbors leaned on ioby to help them get the work done. We know there is much more work to do, but ioby believes that local action and increased civic participation help bend the arc of justice toward a more equitable future.
ioby moved quickly to meet the moment in 2020
  • Leveraged our services to direct more than $5.4 million to groups fundraising on ioby
  • Over $1.1 million raised for Mutual Aid projects across the country
  • Made adjustments to our disbursements to ensure timely access to funds
  • Produced new resources like Crowdfunding in a Crisis webinar, starting Mutual Aid project resources, and Fundraising for Nonprofits
  • Waived fiscal sponsorship fees for urgent projects that care for neighbors
  • Supported dozens of Black-led projects to respond immediately to the Movement for Black Lives
  • Offered tailored coaching to neighbors who needed to adapt their projects because of COVID‑19

People and places
There are many different ways to define your community; from the folks you congregated with at your place of worship, to the people you play with at your local sports league. Wherever you find it, community is an essential building block to vibrant and strong neighborhoods, and we believe it's the best place to start making positive change.

Anyone with a great idea anywhere in the country can work with ioby, as long as their idea works to strengthen and benefit their own community. We also invest in on-the-ground staff to work alongside neighbors to lift up what makes that place special, and to support civic participation. Last year, we were thrilled to add Cincinnati to our places of focus that already included Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit, and Memphis. In these cities, our Action Strategists work directly with residents to build trust and develop neighborhood leadership to make positive civic change, with a special focus on neighborhoods with histories of disinvestment and racist policies. They are the movers and shakers that neighbors can lean on for advice, support, and to help build connections with other changemakers and decision makers. Many of our Action Strategists have even led their own ioby projects!

Cincinnati has a long history of neighbors working together to get good done. In fact, Leslie Mattie Rich, our new Cincinnati Action Strategist, joined ioby last spring having started her own nonprofit. And she’s in great company. Already, neighbors have raised over $160k on ioby for projects that train neighbors to join local City Council and local School Boards, offer urgent responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and so much more. We see great things ahead!
Levels of Impact
Each ioby project jumpstarts a chain reaction. With each art project installed, mutual aid group organized, or community garden built, neighbors strengthen their civic muscles and set the stage for transformative change. We’ve identified four levels of impact that build on each other when neighbors lead an ioby project.

Civic Level
A project usually doesn’t just end once it’s been built or completed. When neighbors take action to make positive change, and literally invest in their own good ideas, decision makers tend to take note. Civic changemaking becomes a bit more inclusive and responsive.
Accountability Toward Justice
ioby’s commitment to racial justice and support for Black-led ideas is neither new nor perfect.

Though we’ve taken meaningful steps in the last ten years to become an anti-racist organization, we know that this journey does not have an end-point; it requires bold acts of listening, evolving, and improving indefinitely.

In 2020, we continued the work that we had begun in 2019—with the leadership of ioby Board Member Nadia Owusu—to co-create a Racial Equity Framework with ioby staff and board. To support our staff and increase transparency with our community, we also published a statement of solidarity for Black lives, launched a new accountability dashboard that includes a timeline of equitable steps we’ve taken as an organization, and shared what we believe is our strongest anti-racist policy—our hiring practices.
Pittsburgh resident and chef Lisa Freeman raised $6,140 on ioby to help feed poll workers and voters on election day, and keep the flame of community burning through a difficult election season.

Fundraising Curriculum
Working with ioby is more than just crowdfunding—we’re dedicated to coaching leaders to sustain their work well beyond their campaign, and sharing our fundraising expertise is an important piece of our mission. We want our leaders to walk away with the ability to nurture and build their donor base. So, we launched a completely revised comprehensive curriculum to help formalize and expand the crowdfunding training we offer leaders. This new curricula meets each leader where they’re at—whether we’re working with a novice civic leader who needs to build confidence when asking for donations or an experienced changemaker running their fifth (or more!) fundraising campaign with ioby, neighbors have ioby's decade-long fundraising expertise at their fingertips and the support of our Success Team to help incorporate these strategies to reach their funding goal.
Webinar Series
In 2020, we launched a series of brand new webinars to help deepen our support of leaders, and expand our suite of resources. We launched “Fundraising for Change,” a series aimed at building fundraising confidence and skill; and “Big Ideas in Civic Leadership,” a series of webinars that convened civic leaders to inspire, spark ideas, and invite neighbors to step up in new ways.

Meeting the moment
To best support neighbors through multiple inflection points, we pulled together a host of resources around key challenges—COVID-19 relief, projects that support the movement for Black lives, and projects standing up for democracy. We hosted webinars like “Voting on the Block: Boosting civic participation and safe voting” and “Crowdfunding in Unusual Times: Adjusting fundraising plans in times of crisis,” to help leaders meet the moment. We also produced resources and mini-toolkits to serve as starting points for neighbor-led projects, including ioby.org/blm, ioby.org/COVID-19, and ioby.org/elections.
Peer-to-peer learning
At ioby, we believe that neighbors are the experts on the neighborhood. So, as we helped neighbors adapt quickly to new challenges last year, we invited a number of leaders to share their expertise with folks interested in similar projects. Resources like our Learn from a Leader webinar and blog series offered personal, practical advice to project leaders, and gave neighbors an opportunity to connect and share their experiences and tips in real time.

Neighbor Nichelle Daniels, in Garfield Heights, Ohio, knew the challenges that families face with the pandemic because her own family faced them too. So she raised $6,348 to help fill the gaps that were left when schools closed, offering free lunch and enrichment activities to kids in her community.
Working with ioby
We believe that change only happens by moving at the speed of trust, and with strong support systems. Our Leader Success Strategists are key to that approach and help us adapt quickly and meet the needs of our neighbors where they are.

From the beginning of a campaign right up to its execution, ioby’s Success Strategists are there to walk alongside project leaders. They help leaders build their project page, strategize a fundraising plan, craft compelling pitches, and get unstuck whenever roadblocks appear. With thousands of projects under their belt, they’re seasoned experts in grassroots fundraising and movement-building and are a key reason that ioby campaigns outperform other crowdfunding platforms.

In 2020, our Success Strategists played a key role in ioby's response to COVID-19. At the beginning of the pandemic, they worked with project leaders to adjust plans so that projects could still come to life in a creative way, while following public health guidelines. They helped dozens of mutual aid and other rapid response groups set up fundraising pages quickly during a crisis. And, they boosted confidence and provided clarity on how to approach fundraising during uncertain times.

Reacting quickly while nurturing deep relationships, ioby helped neighbors raise more last year than ever before—and helped neighbors step up when they were needed most.
“At the beginning of the pandemic, ioby and our team did what we did best: we met leaders’ needs wherever they were. I saw first hand how quickly and urgently neighbors were organizing for things like mutual aid projects, and my team pivoted on a dime to offer specific guidance, fiscal sponsorship, help get campaigns off the ground fast, and move money to neighbors quickly. I'm so proud that we were able to be there for our neighbors.”
— Farrah Lafontant, Leader Success Strategist

With support from the Cuyahoga Arts & Culture Match Fund, neighbors in Cleveland raised over $11,000 on ioby to produce a virtual performance series that brought joy to Clevelanders and supported Black artists and musicians.
Focus on Match Programs
In 2020, ioby implemented 15 match programs—providing a powerful boost to resident-led projects.

ioby partners with foundations, corporations, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies to create match programs that support local projects with a $1 match for every $1 crowdfunded on ioby. These match programs catalyze neighborhood action while getting institutional funding closer to the ground with at least a 100% return on invested match funds.

Amplifying community responses to COVID-19
As COVID-19 took hold, ioby match programs helped get more funding into the hands of residents addressing the impacts of the pandemic in their communities. Match funds supported direct relief work like mutual aid funds, as well as work to address communities’ mental health and wellness. Match programs have proven to be a flexible, powerful way to help leaders bring their idea to life and meet their neighbors’ needs amidst crisis.

“This ioby match is incredibly invaluable for a small organization like ours which has trouble competing for grant funds with large charities. ioby has enabled us to open THREE farm stands in food deserts… and to ensure low-income workers who normally could not afford fresh food ate well…We cannot tell you how grateful and effective these matching [funds] have been for us.”

What's next?
With your support in 2021, we will:
  • Continue to provide resources and tailored, responsive support to make it easier for residents to take action and make positive change on a local level.
  • Evolve our technology platform to provide the best possible, most user friendly and accessible tool for communities—including ioby project leaders, team members, project donors, and volunteers.
  • Reach and support local resident leaders nationwide, while continuing focused work with residents in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Memphis, and Pittsburgh.
  • Finalize the work we started in 2019 to co-create a Racial Equity Framework with ioby staff and board.

Together, we can increase the resident-led change and civic muscle that is essential for collective recovery and reinvention in our communities.
