How do I know if my project is right for ioby?

If it takes place in your neighborhood, benefits the public, and you don't make money off of it, it can be an ioby project. 

We encourage our ioby Leaders to set a discreet funding goal -- people are more likely to fund the construction of a new compost facility than they are to support general operating costs. 

Here's a tip we like to share: If you have a funding goal that seems daunting, think about what portion of it you can break off as a first ioby campaign. Is there a "phase 1" that you can implement quickly and can help you gain attention? If you can be successful raising a small amount of money on ioby at first, you can always run a second campaign later on, or pursue grants or other funding for the rest of your large goal.
