$22.4 million has been matched by our generous crowdgranting partners.

146,735 patrons have stepped up to donate and create the change they want to see in their community.

1,335 projects have been launched.*

Since our founding, we have helped hundreds of communities raise funds for grassroots projects ranging from alleyways and streetscapes, gardens and greenspaces, public art projects, and more. In recent years, we’ve expanded to include small businesses, building vibrant communities through both community and economic development.

Ebrahim Varachia, President & Co-Founder, on reaching this milestone said, “The projects funded would not be possible without our platform, patrons, project creators, and the generous partners that have understood the opportunity that crowdgranting provides to communities.”

Since 2013, we have partnered with private and public sector partners to distribute matching grants to small businesses, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations that successfully meet their crowdfunding goals with support from the community. Our unique crowdgranting model has provided new opportunities for private and public entities to support community and economic development from the ground up, providing a more equitable approach to granting by harnessing community engagement.
