Shouldn't I set a really big goal in an ioby match program and hope for the best?

Updated on

You will only receive match funding equivalent to what you raise, because each donation is matched as it comes in to your ioby page. 

So we encourage you to aim for an amount of funding that fits your team’s fundraising capacity and immediate budget needs. 

Also, it makes crowdfunding more difficult to set a larger goal than you have a plan to reach, because donors are less likely to give to campaigns that don't look likely to meet their goal. 

Our webinars, our crowdfunding toolkit, and your ioby Success Strategist can all help you set a goal that fits your team size and fundraising plan.

Please share your goal at and our team will get you started!
