It’s never too early to start planning — and fundraising — for your spring projects. If you have a local environmental project that needs financial or volunteer support, apply to post your project on ioby today. ioby stands for ‘in our backyards’ and connects people to environmental projects in their own neighborhoods so they can support them with donations or volunteer time. Anyone can post a project that meets our criteria. Got questions about how it works? Call 917-464-4515 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to Erin or Brandon about your idea for neighborhood change.
