        About

        What We're About

        The Bay Area Community Exchange Timebank (bace.org) promotes and facilitates the use of time instead of money in the exchange of goods and services.

        These exchanges help develop stronger, more resilient connections between individuals and community service organizations which participate in them, by improving communication and the distribution of skills and resources among our participants. We work to help people meet their needs regardless of economic status.

        Our Vision

        A more resilient, sustainable, and fair economy based on relationships, trust and sharing among individuals and community service organizations that strengthens community bonds and empowers Bay Area, California residents to meet their needs regardless of their socioeconomic standing.

        Our Mission

        To build and maintain an active timebank, to facilitate in-person connections, including outreach to economically underserved populations, and to maintain the practice of timebanking within our operations.

        How the Timebank Works

        Every hour of service given to individuals or to community-based organizations that are members of the Timebank is credited to your account. These earned hours are then yours to spend on whatever Timebank goods or services you choose. The foundation of the Timebank is a free, open source online directory, reputation and accounting system; explore categories of exchanges (timebank.sfbace.org).
