Our ioby community 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.

Get one-on-one coaching, fiscal sponsorship, and get your donations doubled with the ioby Neighbor Up Match Fund for projects responding to the long term impacts of COVID-19 in your Cuyahoga County community. 

Matching funds are available now on a first-come, first-served rolling basis until funds runs out. Each participating campaign may access up to a total of $3,000 in matching, for as long as funds are available. 

Share Your Idea

Is my project eligible?

How to get matched? 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, donations to your page will be instantly doubled so that your work goes twice as far.

Please note that immediate emergency response projects, such as food relief or purchase of protective equipment for vulnerable groups, are not eligible for this match opportunity. If your project is an immediate emergency response project, you should instead apply for a grant from Neighborhood Connections. Learn more about eligibility for this match here.


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.
