Timeraiser attracts:
•    Working professionals in their 20s & 30s
•    60% female / 40% male

What is 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 and auction it off on the night of the Timeraiser. 

The 4th London Timeraiser will be May 2nd, 2013. 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.

To date, the Timeraiser has generated almost 115,000 volunteer hours and invested $650,000 in the careers of emerging Canadian artists.
