ONE Omaha is dedicated to actively facilitating the development of neighborhoods through communication, education and advocacy and seeking to strengthen and increase neighborhood engagement in the Omaha metro area. 

ioby believes that it should be easy to make meaningful change “in our backyards”, the positive opposite of NIMBY.  Through providing an affordable online fundraising platform paired with customized one-on-one fundraising coaching, we help resident leaders fund projects that make their neighborhoods safer, greener, more livable, and more fun. Across the country, ioby leaders have already raised over  $4 million in tax-deductible donations for neighborhood projects.

And now, when you crowdfund a project that improves your Omaha neighborhood, donations to your campaign can be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $2000, through a partnership between One Omaha and ioby!

One Omaha match funding is available is available to any group that has completed a LEAD Neighborhood Visioning Session with One Omaha staff. Once you've completed your LEAD Session, get started fundraising with matching funds anytime by clicking 'Start a Project' below to share your project idea. ​ Once you share your idea, an ioby Success Strategist will be in touch with next steps on launching a succesful campaign. ioby will be here to support you through every step of your campaign, so you can bring your idea to life.
