Glen Cove Timebank


Timebanking is a time-based currency. Give one hour of service to another and receive one time credit. One can use the credits to receive services.

An hour of service is always one time credit regardless of the nature of the service performed.

“Equal Time, Equal Value”: An hour of one person’s time is directly equivalent to another person’s hour.

  • Organizations and individuals signing up for a membership can provide and receive services using a “time credit”
  • Even during this pandemic, Glen Cove TimeBank will offer social distancing and remote services that people can participate in!
