You give time, earn credit, and then use that time credit to get a service from another member.
The CDTimeBank has an online list of what members would like to do for other members and what services they would like to receive. As a member, you can see what skills and services your neighbors have to offer and what they need; you can get ideas about what you can give and get.
Trading is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Become a member.
- See what others are offering; post what you’re offering.
- Arrange with another member to provide services or get services.
Timebanking has been ruled tax-exempt by the IRS because you get credit for time (with no monetary value established), there is no legal responsibility on anyone's part to redeem time credit, and because the purpose of timebanking is charitable.
