The ioby One Northside Crowdfunding Challenge matched donations to resident-led projects taking an active role in shaping life in the Northside. Neighborhood organizations and leaders catalyzed new support to make the Northside greener, healthier, more sustainable, and more vibrant! 

ioby Pittsburgh collaborated with nonprofits, schools, community groups, and individuals to receive one-on-one fundraising coaching and dollar-for-dollar matching funds up to $10,000 on their ioby crowdfunding campaign in support of projects that build the Northside's positive future.  

We're still here to support your crowdfunding goals, even though the 2019-2020 matching grant is closed.
