Give to a project  |  Start a project  | Racial Justice Resources 

At ioby, we believe that residents know what’s best for their neighborhoods. We know that low-income residents, communities of color, and especially Black residents have for many years been intentionally excluded from decision-making in their communities. And we know that when Black entrepreneurs dream up positive change to serve the public good, they are often denied the funding and support to make them happen. As part of our commitment to anti-racism, we have to fight against that status quo.

We invite you to join us on our journey to racial justice. As part of that journey, we invite you to give to and learn from the many Black-led projects currently crowdfunding on ioby below, or start your own project fighting for racial justice. As you'll notice, the fight for racial justice is as broad as it is deep. It transcends any one category, and involves everything from food justice, to housing justice, to criminal justice, and—of course—the celebration and honoring of Black joy and Black life. 

As always, your gift on ioby is always tax-deductible and will help directly power neighbor-led positive change across the country.
