Thanks to the generous support of Edward Jones, the National Main Street Center is pleased to provide match funds to support placemaking projects on Main Street. The Placemaking on Main Crowdfunding Challenge connects 10 selected Main Street America programs with ioby to raise funds for placemaking projects downtown and build local fundraising capacity. Each program has received $2,500 in match funds to implement their “lighter, quicker, cheaper” projects. The projects will have a catalytic impact on local economies, activate public spaces, and engage community residents.



  • Donations to the projects below will be doubled in real-time! For example, if you make a $50 donation, the project will receive $100.
  • The maximum amount that can be doubled per-donation is $1,000. 
  • The progress bar "Raised So Far" includes the total amount in donations and matching funds that have been awarded to the project.
  • Donations will be matched until July 31, or until the total $2,500 in match funding has been used.                                                                                                 

So give today, and have your donation go twice as far!
