When you crowdfund with ioby Cincinnati for a project that helps your community recover from COVID-19, we'll double your donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,000!

Share Your Idea

The Cincinnati area is full of helpers. Neighborhood leaders, unofficial mayors of the block, people like you who have always stepped up to do what’s right and to lend a hand. We know that many of you are now trying to figure out how to step up to support your neighbors. We’re here to help.

The Greater Cincinnati Community Recovery Match Program offers up to $2,000 in matching funds to ioby crowdfunding campaigns that respond to the impacts of COVID-19.

Matching funds are available now on a first-come, first-served rolling basis until funds runs out.
Eligibility is limited to:

Informal groups of friends and neighbors, individuals with an idea, and community-based organizations that have an annual budget less than $500,000 are all invited to submit their ideas.

 Is my project eligible?

There's no application process! Simply share your idea and we'll confirm within 1-2 business days whether your project is eligible for this match opportunity. Then, you can post an ioby crowdfunding page and begin fundraising, with support from our experienced team of crowdfunding coaches. When you fundraise, up to $2,000 in donations to your page will be instantly doubled so that your work goes twice as far.

As always, please remember to follow the CDC's guidelines and your local health authority's instructions as you support your community. Putting you and your neighbors’ health first is one of the most important things you can do to offer care, even if it means doing so from afar.
