About ioby Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is pretty special. From 446 bridges to 90 neighborhoods, there’s a lot to love about the mighty Steel City. But most of all: Pittsburghers don’t wait around to get good done. Since we began our on-the-ground work in Pittsburgh, ioby has collaborated with over 130 resident leaders as they plan, crowdfund, and build positive change in neighborhoods all across the city and region. With a median donation of $35, Pittsburghers working with ioby have raised over $450,000 in small donations to make our neighborhoods thriving and full of opportunity for all.


Meet Miriam Parson, Pittsburgh Action Strategist!

As a Pittsburgh Action Strategist, Miriam is working to help even more leaders like you in Pittsburgh make positive change across the city. When you share your idea for positive change in your Pittsburgh neighborhood, Miriam will walk alongside you as you build your crowdfunding campaign page, make your first donation asks, and build your project.

Miriam is a Pennsylvanian who has settled permanently in Pittsburgh and believes in the collaborative spirit of her hometown. As ioby’s Pittsburgh Action Strategist, she listens to Pittsburghers’ ideas to do positive work in their neighborhoods and then pools resources and experts to support the project leader’s success.

Get to know more about Miriam’s love for Pittsburgh’s collaborative spirit and shared sense of place.
