The Low Down

Timeraiser Explained.

Parties for Social Good

Timeraiser is a night of contemporary art, great music, connecting with awesome nonprofit organizations, and having a good time.

HOW A TIMERAISER WORKS

Connect with stand-out nonprofit organizations to find meaningful volunteer opportunities. Bid on art by up & coming Canadian artists in a silent auction where you bid with your volunteer time, not your money. Timeraisers only happen once a year in select cities: find out where there is one near you.

STEP 1

CHAT WITH NONPROFITS

Connect with local nonprofit organizations looking for talented volunteers. Find exciting volunteer opportunities that match your skill set. Once you find a few you like, fill out a Contact Card to let us know who you want to connect with post-event.
We create custom contact lists for each organization, so you can expect to hear from the nonprofits shortly after the event.

STEP 2

BID VOLUNTEER HOURS ON ART

 

Kickstart your art collection. Bid volunteer hours on a curated selection of art by up & coming Canadian artists. Bidding starts at 25 hours and maxes out at 100 hours. If a piece you love reaches 100 hours, anyone can match that bid and we’ll draw a winner at random from the 100-hour bids once the auction ends.

 

If you win, you have one year to finish your volunteer hours to take your art home. The best part? Volunteer with any nonprofit(s) you choose.

STEP 3

IT’S A PARTY, HAVE FUN

 

After a decade of throwing parties for social good, we know how to put on a show.

 

At each Timeraiser we pull out all the stops—good music and live art to breakdancing and photo booths—to make sure you have a great time. And Timeraisers always feature delicious local eats and drinks.
