The Community Foundation of Lorain County is partnering with ioby to DOUBLE donations to crowdfunding campaigns for projects that serve neighborhoods in Lorain County, Ohio!

Are you a resident of Lorain County, OH with an idea to make a positive change in your neighborhood? When you crowdfund with ioby to engage your community, we'll double your donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $500. This means that if you raise $500, ioby will match each donation for a $1,000 total fund; or, if you raise $300, it's doubled to $600 total. 

The Lorain County, OH Match Fund supports residents (like you!) as they bring their ideas for positive change in their community to life. Volunteer-led projects and small grassroots groups can receive one-on-one fundraising coaching, fiscal sponsorship, and dollar-for-dollar matching funds up to $500 on their ioby crowdfunding campaign in support of projects within Lorain County.

Share your project idea below to get started and double your dollars! Matching funds are available now on a first-come, first-served rolling basis until funds run out.

Share Your Idea

Wondering how to get match funds? 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.
