Should the goal I set on my fundraising page include the amount of match funding that I hope to receive?

Updated

Yes. For example: If you need $2,000 to implement your project, the the goal on your ioby page would be $2,000. As you fundraise $1,000 of that goal, the donations would be doubled as they come in, if you are enrolled in an ioby match program.

Please share your goal at ioby.org/idea and our team will be in touch to get started! 


In these budget examples, the maximum match allowed by this ioby match program is $5,000. Every ioby match program has its own maximum match allowed. 


*These examples do not include ioby fees.  


Your original goal: $5,000

You raise: $2,500

Match funding added: $2,500

Total disbursed at the end of the campaign: $5,000*

 

Your original goal: $2,000

Match funding added: $5,000

When the maximum amount of match funding has been applied to your page, the match will automatically shut off. At that point, donations will no longer be matched, but you are always welcome to continue fundraising additional unmatched dollars.

Your ioby page will continue to accept donations after your goal is met, and you can raise your campaign goal at any time during your campaign.
