If you do something to help someone else, whatever skills are involved, each hour of time is collected in your account. You can then use those banked hours to get help from other people in the timebank.
If you volunteer with one of our partner organizations, get timebank credit for your hours! Check the list of organizations. If you don't see an organization you volunteer for, talk to them about partnering with us.
Do you have something that needs just a little attention to be useful again? Bring it to our next Timebank gathering! We’ll be partnering with Sustainable West Seattle and meeting at the Tool Library. Different location: West Seattle Tool Library at Youngstown Cultural Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW. June 21, 2018: 6:30 to 8:00 PM

We recently had a Timebank member set the Timebank up to receive donations through Benevity. You might ask, What is Benevity? The simple answer: It’s a platform for corporate giving that combines volunteering, corporate gift matching, and employee donations. So, say you work for a large corporation and would like to give to the Timebank.
