ACGA's January Expert's Panel
ioby FastCash With Cassie Flynn
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 and to engage your supporters along the way.
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 more than 200 projects raise nearly a half a million dollars for environmental projects across the country. Community gardens, parks, kayaks, compost bins, bicycle programs, chickens, bees and dogs have all benefited from working with us.
Join us, and we'll teach you the tried and true techniques of what we know!

ioby connects people to environmental projects in their own neighborhoods. We use a cutting edge, crowd-resourcing platform for neighborhood civic leaders and emerging environmental innovators. On ioby.org, anyone with a good idea that helps the environment and the community can create their own web-based micro-site to raise tax-deductible donations, find local volunteers and share innovations with a likeminded and local community. We support early stage environmental ideas in cities and connect them online for crowd-accelerated innovation. All the while, we measure and report impacts, and share them with the micro-donors who support projects in their neighborhoods.
