“My volunteer effort has been rewarded with my becoming good friends with fun people passionate about complementary currencies, greatly advanced my understanding of the subject, and has a huge positive impact on the monetary architecture of my software projects. I’ve gotten more from volunteering with BACE than I could ever repay.” – Ken Lynch, Founder of Reciprocity
“Serving as a Lead Volunteer/Staff of the Timebank since 2018 has led to ideas and insights on addressing socioeconomic challenges that individuals and neighborhood organizations have endured since 9/11 and were further compounded by the 2008 housing and financial crisis and the following disproportionate unemployment rate among people of color, the California fires of 2020, and the COVID-19 pandemic.” – Monica Johnston (2021)
