ioby is a proud partner of the  Our Miami Public Space Challenge, an initiative of The Miami Foundation, produced by the Project for Public Spaces with media sponsorship by the Miami Herald. 
ioby is a crowd-resourcing platform for people who want to make positive change in their own neighborhoods. ioby supports resident-led, neighbor-funded projects that make Miami neighborhoods stronger and more sustainable. On ioby, anyone can bring an idea to life by using ioby to collect tax-deductible donations, recruiting local volunteers and sharing ideas with a likeminded community.
A selection committee of community experts and placemaking professionals selected top ideas from the Public Space Challenge for prize funding. Even with generous support from the Miami Foundation, some of these winners still need some funding and are turning to neighbors in Miami to help them bring their awesome ideas to life!
