About ioby Cleveland

We’ve got to admit: Cleveland is pretty amazing. When neighbors across the city set out to get good done in the neighborhood, Clevelanders are there to lend a hand. Since we began our on-the-ground work, ioby Cleveland has supported over 200 resident leaders as they plan, crowdfund, and build positive change in neighborhoods across the city. With a median donation of $35, these leaders have raised over $500,000 in small donations to make ioby Cleveland neighborhoods greener, safer, more livable, and more full of opportunity for all residents.


Meet Dawn Arrington, ioby Cleveland Action Strategist!

As a Cleveland Action Strategist, Dawn Arrington is working to help even more leaders like you in Cleveland make positive change across the city. When you share your idea for positive change in your Cleveland neighborhood, Dawn will walk alongside you as you build your crowdfunding campaign page, make your first donation asks, and build your project.

Dawn is a born and bred Clevelander with a love for helping others and her community. With years of experience in community network building, customer service, and project development, Dawn sees her life’s mission as one of service.
