What is the Timeraiser?

The Timeraiser is a silent art auction with a twist. Instead of bidding money, participants bid volunteer time to agencies that need their skills and energy. We buy all artwork at fair market value beforehand and auction it off on the night of the Timeraiser. The 3rd Vancouver Timeraiser will be held on Thursday September 23rd at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Yaletown.

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. During the 12 months after the Timeraiser, while participants are completing their volunteer hours, artwork will be displayed in the offices of corporate partners and in various community spaces.

To date, the Timeraiser has generated 55,000 volunteer hours and invested $350,000 in the careers of emerging Canadian artists.
