Follow these steps to join the Santa Fe Time Bank:
1. SUBMIT AN ONLINE APPLICATION
If you don’t have access to the internet, please come to the office during office hours so someone can assist you. You can also call the office at 505-490-2119.
Once we have your application, your references have been heard back from, and your cash or time dollar contribution is in, AND you have attended a New Member Orientation we will activate your account and you can begin exchanging.
2. SUBMIT AN ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION
Our member donation is $25 for an individual cost-share, and $50 for a business or organization. Any more helps to offset those with limited cash resources. If that amount is not possible contact the Time Bank Office to work out an alternative. We certainly don’t want to turn anyone away for lack of cash resources .
You may submit through NETWORK FOR GOOD, which helps keep our financial and time dollar costs lower. Please click the link below and, when on the NETWORK FOR GOOD page, scroll down to select “SANTA FE TIME BANK”. Please add your name and email in the contact info so that we know how to reach you if we need to. Please call the office with any questions.

4. ATTEND A NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION
Wherever you are in the application process you may attend the NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION (NMO).
New Member Orientations take place at the Time Bank Office at 1219 Luisa St.#1 5:30-7:30
These meetings will provide you with basic training on Time & Talents, connect you to other time bank members and answer questions you may have. This is the nuts and bolts meeting. It is required.
We’ll also discuss issues that come up around communication, safety, how the cash economy interfaces with a time bank exchange (gas money if someone gives you a ride to ABQ) and many more.
