About ioby Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is pretty special. From 446 bridges to 90 neighborhoods, there’s a lot to love about the mighty Steel City. But most of all: Pittsburghers don’t wait around to get good done. Since we began our on-the-ground work in Pittsburgh, ioby has collaborated with over 254 resident leaders as they plan, crowdfund, and build positive change in neighborhoods all across the city and region. With a median donation of $35, Pittsburghers working with ioby have raised over $950,000 in small donations to make our neighborhoods thriving and full of opportunity for all.


Match funds available! Double your donations up to $5,000

The Pittsburgh COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Match Fund provides matching dollars to campaigns crowdfunding on ioby for projects that address the impacts of COVID-19. Matching funds are available now on a first-come, first-served rolling basis until funds runs out. Informal groups of friends and neighbors, nonprofits that are run solely by volunteers, and community-based organizations that have an annual budget under $100,000 are all invited to submit their project ideas.
