Giving Tuesday 2021

Join the global generosity movement on Giving Tuesday and donate to the BACE Timebank on Nov 30, 2021. While we use time as a currency, some of our operating costs can only be paid with dollars. Therefore, every dollar you donate makes a big impact. Specifically, your donation helps pay for technical and marketing services which keeps our timebank operating and open to the general public. We’re helping people recreate their communities and maintain or improve their quality of life.  Please donate today!

Hiding Skills & Talents?

The first Wednesday of the month, members meet to share their skills. I’m surprised when members mention only skills that they’ve derived from paid work. A skill is skill, regardless of the way it was gained. I know someone who has a knack for finding lost pets—it’s not a work skill, just a talent he has. Come to skillshares with skills from paid work and talents you’ve developed over the years.

Strategies for Posting

Get the right people to respond to your post by changing how you post. “Need help with phone” can attract various timebankers as it is a bit vague. But “Need advice on fixing phone” tells people your looking for advice and not someone to fix your phone.

8/17 National Nonprofit Day

At BACE, we kick-off NND (#NationalNonprofitDay) by thanking you, Timebank members, for your membership and participation in community building through making requests/offers. We express our gratitude to our all-volunteer staff who operate the Timebank so that people can meet their needs regardless of income.  We encourage other nonprofit organizations to do more than just say “thank you” by becoming an organization member of the Timebank and showing gratitude for service (#GratitudeForService)  by giving your volunteers hours of credit.  

If you know of a nonprofit that supports itself with volunteers, please reach us here and provide the name of the organization and a contact so we can invite them to join the Timebank…and send you some time to spend.

Giving Tuesday 2019!

Hello Timebankers!

This December 3rd, 2019 is Giving Tuesday, and the BACE Timebank will be holding its first direct request fundraiser to pay for services that the Timebank incurs which can’t be paid in time credits. Please consider giving $1, $5 or $10 to help sustain your timebanking experience.

There are many forms of fundraising, and a direct request to BACE Timebank members is a means of last resort. In October, a Timebank Co-Director spoke at an event, and the honorarium was given to the Timebank. We will continue to use such paths for fundraising, but we must also look to ourselves, the users of the Timebank, to sustain, improve, and grow the Timebank.

Funds are currently needed to cover basic operational costs such as website hosting, email service, and technical updates to our time accounting system. We neither receive investment funds, nor do we sell any ads, but rely on volunteers and donations. Please consider giving what you can!

Thank you & keep on timebanking!

Your BACE Timebank Co-Directors,
Monica, Carl & AZ.

… Oh, by the way, the Timebank has service opportunities as Co-Director (various counties), public relations, and event planning. Please contact us at to volunteer in exchange for time credit.
