Common Ground is a day of community conversation, organized by the Cleveland Foundation. On June 24, community members, neighbors, families, and organizations across the region will host mealtime conversations about the future of our region. United by a common question, all Common Ground conversations have the same goal: to create spaces where meaningful connections are made and purposeful actions begin.


Common Ground is an opportunity for neighbors to discuss what’s important to them and what ideas they have for making their community thrive. If you and your neighbors have a great idea for your community, you can bring it to life on ioby this summer by participating in our Common Ground Crowdfunding Match!


With support from the Cleveland Foundation, ioby is offering up to $1,500 in matching funds, plus fundraising coaching, to leaders of projects that improve community life in Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties.


So whether you and your neighbors are dreaming of a mural, a street festival, an afterschool program, or new community garden, ioby can help you bring it to life. Funding is available beginning on June 24--so share your idea below to get started fundraising with matching dollars!
