Over the 4 years since the Louisville TimeBank was founded, an issue that has come up for members is that some services are not as available for timebank exchanges as members would like. Often, they would be larger home repair jobs, work that needed to be done on a regular basis, or it was a member’s regular employment and they really couldn’t afford to do the exchange for timebank credits as it would take time away from making regular income.
Many members have small businesses and have informally given discounts to other TimeBank members when buying services or products from them, and members like knowing that their dollars are going to support a member in the TimeBank.
We are taking a page from Mutual Aid Networks and collectives in starting this new Pilot Program, to allow TimeBank members to support other member’s businesses, as well as receiving special deals given from the business. This program may be amended after we all have some experiences with how it works. Please give feedback on this page and the program at firstname.lastname@example.org We would like to hear your thoughts!
