ioby is a civic tech nonprofit that mobilizes neighbors who have good ideas to become powerful civic leaders who plan, fund, and make positive change in their own neighborhood. ioby was recognized by the Obama Foundation for contributions to civic innovation, was awarded the Jane Jacobs Medal by the Rockefeller Foundation, and an American Civic Collaboration Award for increasing civic participation.
ioby is a community of local leaders, donors, and volunteers creating, funding, and implementing neighborhood projects that make their neighborhoods stronger, more just, and more sustainable. We believe it should be easy to make meaningful change "in our back yards," the positive opposite of NIMBY, and that change should be led by neighbors and community members. Our crowd-resourcing platform at ioby.org helps leaders do just that, connecting them with the funding and support they need to get their projects done. Crowd-resourcing combines concepts in crowdfunding and resource organizing, and allows anyone to organize all types of capital–financial capital, social capital, in kind donations, volunteer muscle–from within the community the project is taking place. Since our launch in 2009, ioby has grown to serve projects in over 260 cities and towns across the United States, with more than 2,300 projects completed with the support of over $8 million in citizen philanthropy.
