IOBY

If you've ever considered the possibility of crowd-funding to support your community garden or urban farm but weren't sure how to start, the answer is now in your backyard. ioby.org, an environmental nonprofit, has just announced its national expansion after a successful NYC pilot fully funded nearly 2000 community-led parks, garden, biking, hiking, composting and chicken projects across the city. ioby (its name derived from the opposite of NIMBY) intends to connect people to environmental projects in their own neighborhoods. And, in fact, most ioby micro-donors give on average $35, live within 2 miles of the project site they're supporting and regularly volunteer with the project. Post your project today at ioby.org/idea

Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is one method of fundraising becoming increasingly popular, with the crowdfunding industry growing to over $5.1 billion worldwide in 2013. Crowdfunding allows an individual or group to funding their project or venture with monetary contributions from a wide range of people and businesses, typically via the Internet. Typically, an individual starts the fundraising and each individual who then sees the project can then promote projects in which they believe. This allows individuals to feel responsible for the success of the initiative and to feel socially involved. Forbes.com released a list of the top 10 crowdfunding websites which can be found at the following website:
