At ioby, we believe that it should be easy to make meaningful change in our own backyards. By providing an affordable online fundraising platform paired with customized one-on-one fundraising coaching, we help resident leaders fund projects that make their neighborhoods thrive. Across the country, ioby leaders have already raised over $5 million in tax-deductible donations for neighborhood projects. And here in the Pittsburgh region, neighbors have raised over $450,000 with ioby's coaching.


The Jefferson Regional Foundation is partnering with ioby to support small local organizations working to make the Jefferson Region healthier, more sustainable, more resilient, and more livable.


When you crowdfund with ioby, you can double your donations by getting every dollar you raise matched up to $5,000, dollar-for-dollar!

In addition to match funding, all participating groups will be placed in a peer-based cohort for support, with customized ioby workshops where you will have the opportunity to learn from eachother. Groups that fundraise will also receive one-on-one coaching from ioby in grassroots crowdfunding to build community investment in your local work.
