About ioby Detroit

There’s a lot to love about Motor City, but our favorite thing has got to be Detroiters’ readiness to get good done. Since we began our on-the-ground work in Detroit, ioby has supported over 100 resident leaders as they plan, crowdfund, and build positive change in neighborhoods across the city. With a median donation of $35, these leaders have raised over $270,000 in small donations to make Detroit neighborhoods thriving and full of opportunity for all.



Meet Joe Rashid, your ioby Detroit Action Strategist! 


As an ioby Detroit Action Strategist, Joe Rashid is working to help even more leaders like you in Detroit make positive change across the city. When you share your idea for positive change in your Detroit neighborhood, he'll walk alongside you as you build your crowdfunding campaign page, make your first donation asks, and build your project.

Joe is a lifelong Detroiter who believes that there is not a more innovative and creative city in this country than Detroit and he loves aiding others to discover how to turn their great ideas into a reality for its communities. 


Learn more about our City Action Strategists and how we work on-the-ground to support resident-led change.
