Why choose ioby?

We’re proud to be the first non-profit civic crowdfunders on the scene!
ioby is the first of its kind to offer crowdfunding technology- the ability to pool small donations from lots of donors- for neighborhood change. ioby is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations to projects on ioby are tax-deductible. Anyone can use ioby, so if you’re not a 501(c)3 yourself, ioby can offer you a limited form of fiscal sponsorship.

We help you every step of the way.
ioby is more than a funding platform. We call ioby crowdresourcing because we want you to get all the resources you need for a successful project. We connect you to other civic leaders, host meetings and discussions to support thought leadership in local solutions and civic engagement, like our Getting Good Done series, and bring you into a community of peer learning through our Recipes for Change toolkit. Check our our full suite of resources here.

We’re mission driven.
We are committed to advancing the goals of civic leaders and have a stake in helping your projects succeed. That's why we're proud to share:
  • 87% success rate of fully funded projects
  • Unique flexible finish policy that makes it easier for you to get the funds you raise
  • Low fee structure that intentionally supports early stage ideas and small projects
