Since we began our on-the-ground work in Cleveland in March 2016, ioby has trained over 1,300 Clevelanders to plan, fund, and build positive change in neighborhoods across the city, gathered over 350 brilliant ideas for local community projects, and supported over 125 project leaders in launching their crowdfunding campaigns. Together these leaders have raised nearly $200,000 in small donations to make Cleveland neighborhoods safer, greener, more livable and more fun.
