In partnership with the Walton Family Foundation,
ioby is bringing a new match funding opportunity to
Northwest Arkansas!

Donations will be matched up to $15,000
for projects that leverage or improve public spaces
in Arkansas’ Benton and Washington counties
that are led by residents or small local nonprofits.

Watch our webinar about this match program!

Residents bring their communities to life with their great ideas for positive impact. If you live in Arkansas’ Benton & Washington Counties, this program will double up to $1,000 per donor and up to $15,000 total for projects that utilize public spaces for community good. Public spaces include parks, schools, community centers, sidewalks, community gardens, crosswalks, and more. 

Wondering how to get started? Simply submit your idea below and we'll let you know whether you are eligible to participate in this ioby match program. You'll receive ongoing support from a dedicated ioby crowdfunding coach. While you fundraise, donations to your page will be instantly doubled (up to $1,000 per donor) so your fundraising work goes twice as far. For example, if someone donates $25, your ioby crowdfunding page will receive a donation of $50!

Share your idea to get started!

Eligibility is limited to volunteer groups or nonprofits with
an annual budget smaller than $250,000.

The first $1,000 is matched per donor, and participants can access up to $15,000 in matching funds until the program ends.
