Hi TimeBank Member!

Our potluck is April 13th this month, make sure you sign up to attend.  we always have fun, and the food is always great! Potluck Details are here

Spring always seems to make us think of projects that need to be done, and having many hands helps make bigger projects easier! We have tips to help you organize a member work event in the TimeBank. 

We have several new members and we encourage you to dive in, and receive or offer a service. If you haven't gone to an orientation, we highly recommend that you do- it helps get you started quickly, and you can have you questions answered. Our next orientation 

We hope you are enjoying the lovely weather- spring is so welcome this year after the long winter! 

Happy TimeBanking! 

Renewing your membership

The first annual Louisville TimeBank membership renewal and annual giving campaign is underway! If you joined the TimeBank between December 2011 and March 31 2013, it is time to renew!    Please renew  regardless of your ability to donate money.

If you can, we invite you to contribute any amount to our annual fund to help cover expenses such as rent, internet services, website maintenance and hosting, filing fees and printing.

 A new way to support the TimeBank is to become a sustaining member. You contribute an amount monthly(as little as $3) and your membership will automatically renews! You will also receive our new bumper sticker as a gift to show your support for the Louisville TimeBank! 

If you are a newer member, or your renewal is not yet due, please consider contributing to our annual fund or becoming a sustaining member! 

Not time for me to renew, but I would like to donate to the Annual fund or change to a sustaining membership! 

Member Work Events- How to do it? 


Big gardening projects, painting, organizing a room? 

Many times there are projects that you need more than one person to come help. These projects often take more planning and organizing than a regular request. Here are some hints to make sure your member work day is a success!

Emailing TimeBank members solicitations

We have recently received some complaints about members being emailed by other members for donations, fundraisers, business opportunities, or events. 

Please do not email any solicitations to members. Member email addresses you have received from your Timebank membership  are only to be used for TimeBanking reasons.

This is important for people to feel comfortable giving their email addresses to us to know that they will not be put on any kind of list that emails them about businesses, events, or non profits that they did not specifically request to be on. 

We appreciate everyone's attention to this matter. 

Members with fun stuff happening!
