If you need money to get your green idea started or to buy materials, we will teach you how to successfully fundraise for your project, to engage your audience and to not go bankrupt yourself.
ioby connects people and money to site-based projects. All of these projects are conceived, designed, and run by neighbors—which ensures community buy-in, long-term caretakers and daily reminders of what’s been achieved.
We've helped about 200 projects raise over $400,000 for environmental projects around NYC in the past few years, and are now expanding our efforts nationwide. Community gardens, parks, kayaks, compost bins, bicycle programs, chickens, bees and dogs have all benefited from working with us.
So come by and we'll teach you the tried and true techniques of what we know!
