Mission Statement

Cville Timebank is designed to nurture, inspire, and motivate a network of neighbors to come together to create a caring and sharing community.

Overview

Timebanking is simply about spending an hour or two or three doing something for somebody in your community. That hour goes into the TimeBank as a Time Credit. No money is ever exchanged. Then you have a Time Credit to spend on having someone do something for you. It's a simple idea, but it has powerful ripple effects. You are helping someone who may not have funds needed to get a certain job done; you're helping to build community connections, and you can more easily find someone to do something you would like to have done. You work with a small group of committed individuals who are joined together for a common good.

Timebanking is an alternative monetary system based on circles of giving and receiving. It’s based on the principle that we are all assets, and that we all have something to give. Cville TimeBank is a project of the 2012 class of Charlottesville's Neighborhood Leadership Institute.

Instead of asking, “How can I help you?” we should be asking “How can we help each other?” A Time Bank allows us to work together to create a system of mutual respect to rebuild and sustain our community, taking advantage of our unused resources to fulfill our unmet needs.

CNE is excited to launch 7 Actionable Principles for a Strong Social Sector!

Building on themes from 10 discussion sessions with 67 community members, and several leading national frameworks for nonprofit health and impact, the 7 Actionable Principles aim to create a shared understanding of what makes a healthy nonprofit and build a supportive learning community of nonprofits and funders.

We encourage you to check out the site and you can find a recording of our launch town hall here.

CNE Members: Schedule a complimentary hour of support and coaching around the 7 Actionable Principles here.
