Mission Statement
Increasing efficiency, opportunity, and resource sharing through mutually beneficial exchange - building community ties and self-sufficiency for individuals and organizations in Dane County.

History Of Practice
The Dane County TimeBank, established in 2005, is a network of over 2500 individuals and organizations who exchange services and skills to build community, build capacity, and come together to support each other. In timebanking, everyone's contribution is valued equally, one hour equals one hour no matter who you are or what you do. Services exchanged help to fill resource gaps in the community, matching unmet needs with unused resources. Anyone can join the TimeBank to offer skills or services and receive services in exchange. TimeBank members help each other and receive credits for their service. Anyone who helps another member earns one TimeBank Hour for each hour of help given, which they can then spend on an hour of service from anyone else in the network. Timebanking is a way to value the work we do for others in our community and the work we do in building that community. We each have talents and skills that someone else values. By sharing them we create community.

Personal Statement
The TimeBank is interested in connecting with the Wellness Collective in mutually beneficial ways through timebanking and resource sharing.

Upcoming Projects
The Dane County TimeBank has become a valuable tool to build programs that help solve challenges identified by the community - collaborating with community partners Dane County Human Services, Madison School District, and other supporters and participants to connect unmet needs with unused resources. Our PROJECTS provide meaningful ways for members to tap into to the network and offer needed skills and services. Currently the TimeBank is running the following projects: restorative justice/youth courts, transportation, inclusion, front yard gardens, mutual aid networks, and Maxine's TimeBank Store. The TimeBank is working to get our Wellness Project back up and running.
