Share your idea to get started

Our ioby community is full of helpers. Neighborhood leaders, unofficial mayors of the block, people like you who want to step up to do what’s right, lend a hand and make positive local change in your neighborhoods. We're here to help.

Whether you're a student with an amazing idea, urban farmer, social justice activist, artist, or a motivated neighbor looking to make a difference within your own community, ioby’s Detroit Match Fund is a way to double your donations and make a meaningful impact within your own neighborhood. Ready to get started?

What projects are eligible?

 

When you crowdfund with ioby you'll get access to our free resources and crowdfunding guidance, you'll be paired with a one-on-one ioby coach to help set you up for success, we offer fiscal sponsorship to groups who are not a 501c3, and our fees are very low because we are a nonprofit. If your project is not eligible for this match program, you may still be eligible to fundraise on ioby without matching funds.
