#GivingTuesday Special — Groupon Doubles Donations to ioby Projects

ioby is proud to announce our partnership with Groupon Grassroots. Beginning today, Giving Tuesday, and throughout the giving season until December 31, Groupon will be matching donations to ioby projects when donors purchase giving codes through Groupon Grassroots. Your $10 purchase will be doubled by Groupon and given to you to apply $20 to an ioby project of your choice. Don’t delay! Get your giving code doubled by Groupon today!


How it works

This Giving Tuesday, ioby is excited to be partnering with Groupon to help get these awesome neighborhood projects the funding they deserve. All of these projects are aimed at making neighborhoods stronger and more sustainable, and they all need some extra cash to come to life.


  1. Learn. Click on each project to learn more and decide which project you’d like to support.
  2. Make your gift. The giving code that you purchased from Groupon is worth $20, but you can choose to give as much as you’d like. Enter the full amount that you would like to give into the orange box on the right-hand side of the project’s page, and click the “Donate to this Project!” button.
  3. Look over your Donation Cart. You will be brought to your Donation Cart, where you will review your order. Once you’ve looked this over, hit “Checkout.”
  4. Redeem your code. On the Checkout page, enter your giving code and click “continue to next step.” If you entered your giving code correctly, you should see $20 applied to your donation. Now you can continue checking out as you normally would!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at donations@ioby.org.
