TimeTender is designed to encourage service on organization-hosted community projects, through a time credit system based on volunteer service hours. Time credits are created when residents volunteer with a nonprofit project or program, and can be traded with other residents for the hourly use of their skills or redeemed for educational, recreational and cultural experiences at local institutions.
2. The idea is examined by the impacted community. If the idea is determined to be beneficial, the idea is empowered with the ability to issue TimeDollars.
3. The idea now becomes a project hosted on TimeTender. The project now has the power to attract and award volunteers with time dollars for their work.
4. Volunteers who participate with the project can trade TimeDollars with other volunteers in exchange for individual services.
5. At the end of their lifecycle, TimeDollars can be redeemed for classes, museum visits, sporting events, recreation, and entertainment at local anchor institutions.
