Time Dollar was officially launched at a community clean up event on July 27, 2002. The inaugural goal was to utilize the time-banking system, which builds community through exchange of time and talents between members. On February 5, 2009, Time Dollar became a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization retroactive to July 14, 2006. As the organization evolved, the Board of Directors adopted their new mission statement: Build Community by Providing for Basic Needs in Ways that can Lead to Life Changing Experiences. Time Dollar continues to use the time-banking values and philosophies as the foundation of their work. Time Dollar is run primarily by volunteers as neighbors help neighbors in their community.
