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.

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. 

Submit your idea to get started!           

Wondering how to get started? Simply submit your idea above! 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. Eligibility is limited to volunteer groups or nonprofits with an annual budget smaller than $250,000 and located in Benton or Washington counties.
