TIMERAISER150

BID TIME. DO GOOD. GET ART. Timeraiser150 is a Canada 150 Signature Project supporting emerging Canadian artists and nonprofit organizations.

 

BID TIME. DO GOOD. GET ART.

Timeraiser150 is a Canada 150 Signature Project supporting emerging Canadian artists and nonprofit organizations.  10 Timeraiser150 parties in 10 provinces allow Canadians to bid on original art by investing volunteer time, not dollars, to causes they care about.  Each Timeraiser150 pulls out all the stops to throw a great party - from live performances to delicious local food and drink. Timeraiser is truly a celebration of creativity and community!

Online150 is an online extension of Timeraiser150.  Through Online150 Canadians from coast to coast can purchase art by volunteering their time with a nonprofit organization in their local community.

Artists are paid for their work, nonprofits find skilled volunteers, Canadians find meaningful volunteer opportunities.

Through Timeraiser150 and Online150, Framework aims to collectively raise more than 150,000 volunteer hours for nonprofits across Canada in 2017, connecting Canadians to their communities and the causes they care about.

All Timeraiser150 parties are made possible because of the work of dedicated volunteers across Canada.


How Timeraiser Works

STEP 1: Timeraiser fosters the next generation of art patrons and values Canadian artists. Each year, artists from around the country apply to have their work purchased by Timeraiser.  All the artwork auctioned by Timeraiser is purchased at fair market value, set by the artist.

STEP 2: Connect with local nonprofit organizations looking for talented volunteers. Finding skilled volunteers is a challenge.  Timeraiser partners with nonprofits across a wide range of social sectors to offers them a unique way to meet talented new volunteers and to promote their good work to a wider audience of supporters. 

STEP 3: Bid time.  Do good. Get art.   Everything comes together at a Timeraiser party and on Online150.  

Attend a party and kickstart your art collection by bidding volunteer hours on original art by up-and-coming Canadian artistsWinners have one year to finish volunteer hours and claim their piece of art. The best part?  Volunteer with any nonprofit(s) you choose!  Download the Timetracker app to keep track of all your volunteer hours and send them directly to Framework.

Online150 is an online extension of Timeraiser150.  Through Online150 Canadians from coast to coast can purchase art by volunteering their time with a nonprofit organization in their local community.

STEP 4: Get involved. Even if you don’t end up winning an original piece of art, join in the social good by pledging hours to volunteer in your community. In 2017, Framework aims to collectively raise more than 150,000 volunteer hours for nonprofits across Canada, connecting Canadians to their communities and the causes they care about.
