ioby is committed to the principles of equal opportunity. ioby’s organizational policies, practices, programs, activities and decisions regarding employment, hiring, assignment, promotion, compensation, volunteerism, internships and other terms and conditions of employment or voluntary service shall not be based on a person’s race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, mental or physical disability, ancestry, military discharge status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, source of income, parental status, housing status, or other protected status, in accordance with applicable law.

ioby is a community of donors, volunteers and leaders creating, funding, and implementing neighborhood projects that aim to 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 crowd funding 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 160 cities across the United States, with more than 1,600 projects completed with the support of over $5 million in citizen philanthropy from neighbors and residents. Our work has been recognized by the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Municipal Arts Society of New York City, and the Obama Foundation, where our co-founder was recognized as a fellow.
