The Dane County Timebank is part of a national network that links individuals, social service organizations, public and private institutions, food producers, neighborhoods, local businesses and arts groups to make it easier to work together. Timebanking is an exchange system. People help each other and receive credits for their service. Anyone who helps another member earns one time dollar per hour, which they can then spend on an hour of service from anyone else in the network. As a member of the Dane County network our Friends group can offer our volunteers the opportunity to join the bank and earn “time dollars” that can be exchanged for materials or services offered by other members.
