The Louisville TimeBank is a member run chapter of TimeBanks USA whose mission is to nurture and expand a movement that promotes equality and builds caring community economies through inclusive exchange of time and talent.
History of the Louisville TimeBank
The Louisville TimeBank was founded by Jennifer Turner after watching a PBS special called Fix the Future where TimeBanking was featured. She began researching TimeBanking, and went to a TimeBank training in Milwaukee, meeting many other TimeBank coordinators. Inspired, she returned to Louisville and began advertising that she was beginning a time bank. The news passed around Louisville quickly, and at that first meeting,in January of 2012 there were over 40 people wanting to sign up. With the help of local and national media who have featured us several times in print and on television, and our members having friends and family join, we have grown to a lively and active TimeBank.
