Timebanking for Organizations

August 24, 2022 @ 12:00 PM 12:30 PM

There are two ways that nonprofit organizations can integrate timebanking into their organization.  This webinar will demonstrate why organizations may want to integrate timebanking into client programs, and secondly, how they can use timebanking to attract and retain a more diverse group of volunteers to their organization. This webinar is led by Monica Johnston and inspired by the work of Alexis Contreras.  Monica is a former co-director and current advisor to the BACE timebank. As a Time Philanthropist, she gives 30-40 hours per month to people and organizations around the world and has been timebanking since 2014. Alexis is the Edgar Cahn Memorial Intern and has experience working with nonprofit organizations.

A Call for Resources

At a time when many people are expressing lack–lack of work, sundries, hand sanitizer, or a good haircut–I’m surprised to hear people say “….timebanking is a nice idea, but that’s not how the real world works.”  Why not? Maybe social distancing rules prevent you from your job at a salon, but you can build your clientele by offering pointers on how to trim those mops in exchange for hours of credit.  When you go back to work who will they come to for a proper cut? Earn hours:  Do you know of someone offering free resources in the Bay Area?  Email us the contact information so we can list it on our Resources page, and you’ll receive 0.5 hour time credit for each resource you identify.
