Welcome to the Fox Valley Time Exchange!

A time bank is a network of individual and organizational members who lend help to others and "bank" their hours spent doing so.  A time bank is not a barter network, since two parties don't exchange with each other. One member provides a friendly, neighborly service to another and records the time they gave. Their balance in the timebank increases and can be used or saved for future needs, either of the individual member or of another community member.

We started our timebank in the Fox Valley region of northeast Wisconsin to help individuals and organizations create stronger communities together.
