  1. A completed application (found on website)

What are timebanks?
There are over 100 successful timebanks in the United States, including the Eastside Timebank, which serves the cities of Kirkland, Redmond, and Bellevue. Timebanks use a low overhead, self-organizing internet based system to help people exchange their talents and passions with other members so that they can enjoy the necessities and niceties of life.

How do timebanks work? 
An hour you spend doing something for a SWEL Timebank member goes into the bank as one time hour. You can then use this time hour having another SWEL member do something for you. 

Timebanking is different than bartering because you can provide a service to one member and receive a service from someone else. All services are tax-exempt, and each hour of service is of equal value.

SWEL stands for Shoreline,  Woodway, Edmonds, Lake Forest Park
