About ioby Detroit

There’s a lot to love about the Motor City, but our favorite thing has got to be Detroiters’ readiness to get good done. Since we began our on-the-ground work in Detroit, ioby has launched over 180 projects, supported over 200 resident leaders as they plan, crowdfund, and build positive change in neighborhoods across the city. With a median donation of $50, these leaders have raised over $730,000 in small donations to make Detroit neighborhoods thriving and full of opportunity for all.
