In Our Backyards Inc.

Brooklyn, New York



This innovative organization uses micro philanthropy in an online format to connect small grant donors and volunteers with groups in need of funding to carry out neighborhood environmental projects in urban areas. This two-year grant commitment allows the nonprofit to build organizational capacity, test, and evaluate a pilot program in New York City, and prepare for a national rollout.
