The Edward Jones Placemaking On Main Crowdfunding Challenge is online and underway!


July 14, 2017 | National Main Street Center |

Thanks to generous support from Edward Jones, the 10 selected Main Street America organizations will receive a $2,500 matching grant toward the implementation of “lighter, quicker, cheaper” placemaking projects. Participants in this program will be connected to the crowdfunding experts at ioby, who will share training materials and deliver customized one-on-one fundraising support. While fundraising on ioby, donations to their campaigns will be doubled in real time, until the $2,500 cap in match funding is met.

Peruse the projects, donate if you’d like, and most importantly, get inspired by these real life placemaking ideas:

From now through the end of the crowdfunding campaign, we’ll also be highlighting each of the 10 projects on our Facebook page.
