How It Works

The concept is simple. As a member of Tompkins Time Traders you can be rewarded for doing what you love. An hour of everyone’s time is equal. By helping a neighbor you receive a time credit (TC) for each hour of your service or skill. In exchange, you can use the TCs you’ve accrued in the time bank for services offered by another member.

No matter what you have to offer an hour is an hour.  Our Member Handbook is chock full of information on Tompkins Time Traders.

Time credits for services provided, as well as received, are tracked via a web based program. For more information on the software, here’s the Software Guide.

Joining is easy!  Once you’re a member you too can start trading and receiving services.  Join Us!
