What is it?
Timeraiser is a silent art auction with a twist: Bid time, not money on works of art by local emerging artists. Timeraiser artists are paid fair market value for their work, thanks to our generous corporate partners.
We like to say that the Timeraiser is like speed-dating for volunteerism. The night of the Timeraiser, match your skills with the many agencies who are in the room - once you make a match, you're eligible to bid your time on artwork.

What are we trying to accomplish?
The Timeraiser connects people to causes and causes to people. We reach out to young professionals who are looking for ways to get involved, but aren't quite sure how. The Timeraiser brings together local agencies who are looking for skilled volunteers, while celebrating the work of artists in the community.
We aim to generate volunteer hours in the community while encouraging skilled volunteerism. We follow-up with each art winner to ensure pledge completion.
Where are we headed?
The Timeraiser is currently in 8 Canadian cities: Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Hamilton, London and Ottawa. We plan to reach 10 cities by 2012 - including Montreal and Halifax.
