Starting in 2017, ioby is working with residents across Austin to help get neighborhood projects funded and in the ground!

ioby believes that it should be easy to make meaningful change “in our backyards,” the positive opposite of NIMBY. Through providing an affordable online platform paired with customized one-on-one fundraising coaching, we help leaders fund projects that make their neighborhoods safer, greener, more livable, and more fun. 

Across the country, ioby leaders have raised over $3 million in tax-deductible donations for neighborhood projects! What would you do to improve your neighborhood? Tell us your idea below and you can start crowdfunding as soon as tomorrow. 

Once you submit your idea, a Success Strategist from ioby’s team of fundraising coaches will be in touch to discuss your specific fundraising needs, offer tips, and answer your questions. We’ll be here to support your success through every step of your campaign, so you can bring your idea to life!
