Double your crowdfunding power with match funding!

ioby helps neighbors grow and implement great ideas one block at a time. We believe it should be easy to make meaningful change “in our backyards”—the positive opposite of NIMBY. Neighbors nationwide have raised over $6 million in citizen philanthropy on ioby for projects that make their communities healthier, greener, safer, and more livable. When you post a project on ioby you can collect tax deductible donations, find new donors and volunteers, and receive one-on-one fundraising coaching. Learn the basics of fundraising with ioby.

ioby also offers match funding opportunities throughout the year. When you participate in an ioby match program, we’ll double donations in real-time as you fundraise! So when someone donates $20 to your campaign, it will instantly be turned into $40. Match funding can be a great way to accelerate your crowdfunding campaign and make your fundraising work go twice as far.

Not sure if you qualify? When you tell us your idea, a member of our team will automatically check to see if you're eligible to receive matching funds.
