Mission: The Onion River Exchange fosters the well-being of our community by providing an exchange network of services and goods that strengthens social cohesion, encourages reciprocity, enhances our local economy and is built on a foundation of respect and equality.

The Onion River Exchange (ORE) is a time bank in which members exchange skills, talents, and services using time instead of money.  ORE is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization and can receive tax exempt donations. We are a network of individuals, businesses, and organizations that uses the resources of our community to:

  • Give and receive services to/from each other
  • Save money
  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Feel connected and Involved in the community
  • Increase community health and well-being as well as support sustainability
  • Further develop a complimentary currency, time

Members post offers and requests and log time earned or spent using our online timebanking system. The time “banked” can be used for future exchanges with any member. Central to timebanking is the agreement that one hour of your time is equal to one hour of my time.  The ORE timebank is based upon the five core values of timebanking.
