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 and more sustainable. ioby operates primarily through ioby.org, a digital crowd-resourcing platform that supports these citizen-led, neighbor-funded initiatives in raising tax-deductible donations, volunteer recruitment and idea sharing. Crowd-resourcing, combining concepts in crowd funding and resource organizing, allows anyone to organize all types of capital — financial capital, social capital, in kind donations, volunteer muscle — from within the community where the project is taking place. ioby launched in beta in mid-2009 as a NYC pilot. Since then we've grown into a national organization, serving projects in more than 160 cities, with more than 1,150 projects completed with support from more than $3.38M in citizen philanthropy. Our work has been recognized by the Municipal Arts Society of New York City who awarded ioby the 2011 Livable Cities Award and by the Rockefeller Foundation who awarded ioby’s co-founders the Jane Jacobs Medal for New Technology and Innovation.
