The Reimagining Communities Match Program doubles donations for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) residents or BIPOC-led groups* who crowdfund for projects that reimagine public spaces and infrastructure. Up to $500 per donor is doubled instantly for eligible projects.

This match program supports BIPOC residents and BIPOC-led unincorporated groups or small nonprofits (with budgets under $250,000) to crowdfund for projects that will radically reimagine public space or support the implementation of public infrastructure investment in their communities. Projects can be a local response to a larger community issue or an early-stage solution that can be implemented to show what is possible in the future. After submitting an idea, project leaders will receive one-on-one crowdfunding support from ioby
