About ioby Cincinnati

Cincinnati is full of energy—there's so much happening in the world of positive civic change, it's hard not to be excited! But part of what makes Cincinnati so special to us is its long history of neighbors working together to get good done. It's pretty clear that Cincinnatians have no shortage of great ideas, and are ready to make them happen. And when neighbors want to roll up their sleeves to get good done and make Cincinnati even more awesome, ioby is there to lend a hand.

We're so excited to join Cincinnati with our first-ever office in the Queen City. With a median donation of $35, neighbors across the country have already raised over $10 million to help make their communities greener, safer, more livable, and more full of opportunity for all residents. How will you get good done in Cincinnati?
