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 400 brilliant ideas for local community projects, and supported over 115 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.

Fight climate change—get up to $5K in matching funds!

We’ve teamed up with the Cleveland Climate Action Fund and Resilient Cleveland to award $1:$1 matching funds to community projects that prepare Cleveland neighborhoods for the impacts of climate change.

As a part of the CCAF Crowdfunding Challenge, every dollar raised towards your ioby project could be matched up to $5,000 (or until the funds run out)! This effectively doubles the resources available to resident-led projects and programs administered by community-based organizations all over the city. Learn about the requirements and timeline here.
