Great neighborhood projects are on the horizon, all through a sustainable lens. ioby has teamed up with The Cleveland Climate Action Fund and Resilient Cleveland to award matching funds, up to $5,000 per project, to residents and community-based organizations for their outstanding projects. This is a competitive match, meaning not all campaigns will receive match funds. Each donation to a campaign below will increase their respective competitiveness in the match.
