Interested in exploring how to launch a Time Bank in your community? In addition to Great Bay Time Bank’s group profile and website, here are some resources that will get you started:

This website provides an online platform to manage your community’s Time Bank. The annual membership fee depends on the number participants in your Time Bank and runs from $25 up to $900 if you have more than 800 members. In addition to a membership directory, giving an overview of Time Banks across the country, and a Knowledge section with list of articles related to Time Banking, an overview of coordinator calls and trainings and more, the Action Hub has very specific resources on starting a Time Bank with sample memberships forms, guidebooks, etc.

Dane County Time Bank

This is an example of a Time Bank operating in Dane County (WI). The website has Tools for TimeBankers and video tutorials for people interested in Getting Started as time bank participants.
