More than just crowdfunding. Community-led positive change.

ioby gives leaders the ability to organize all kinds of capital—cash, social networks, in-kind donations, volunteers, advocacy— to build real, lasting change from the ground up. 

 

Three ways we're different

How we work

ioby's high success rate for funded projects is rooted in a unique model of fundraising coaching.  With ioby, you won't just put up a page, you'll work with our team to craft the most effective campaign, fundraising plan, timeline, and budget. We support and train leaders whether they are working on a $500, $5,000, or $50,000 goal.

How we work

Unlike other platforms, we support fully tax-deductible donations because we offer fiscal sponsorship to groups that are not established as a nonprofit. Our model encourages grassroots leadership regardless of incorporation status.

How we work

ioby also believes in the power of offline connections. We can connect you with experts in subjects like urban planning, green infrastructure, and more for help implementing your project. And we hold regular in-person convenings and webinars so our community of changemakers can share knowledge, challenges and experiences.
