Organizations and Volunteers Connect at Timeraiser.

The 4th Edmonton Timeraiser is October 11th at the Transalta Arts Barns. Participants pledge to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours with the organizations they connect with at Timeraiser.Some will pledge more. Their hours become the currency that they can then use to bid on artwork in the silent auction. Successful auction bidders have 12 months to complete their volunteer pledge. When they do they bring the artwork home as a reminder of their goodwill.

Are you with or do you know of a non-profit organization that is seeking volunteers in Edmonton? Do you have skilled volunteer opportunities and are looking to make a match with young professionals in the city? We are looking for a mix of large, small, local and national organizations that are seeking skilled volunteers.

Timeraiser is part volunteer fair, part silent auction, and part night on the town. Throughout the evening, participants meet with organizations and explore the exciting, innovative and meaningful volunteer opportunities available to them.

The three main objectives of Timeraiser are to:
connect organizations to skilled and energstic volunteers

raise awareness about participating organizations in the community

bring together the arts and non-profit sectors to create community connections

The deadline for organizations to apply to participate is August 20, 2012. Organizations can apply online today. For more information, visit and please circulate this notice to your friends and colleagues in the non-profit community.
