How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Sauder School of Business Time Auction

This year, the Sauder School of Business at UBC is piloting an initiative called Time Auction. It allows alumni volunteers to bid volunteer hours for a chance to meet inspiring people from different walks of life.

Any volunteer hours accrued between January 1, 2014 and February 28, 2015 (14 months) can be used to bid on rewards. You can find volunteering opportunities here, or you can volunteer for any registered charity, not-for-profit, or school club. All volunteer hours will be verified with the organization, and only confirmed alumni can win the auctions.

Happy volunteering, and thank you for giving back!

What is Time Auction?

Time Auction is a movement to encourage philanthropy by using priceless rewards as incentives.

How do I get the reward?

You will need to sign up in order to make a bid. Once you have an account, click on an auction you like, and click "Make a bid" to place a bid.

Who wins?

Volunteer hours and donations both convert into our currency, Karma Points. Each Karma Point counts as an entry into the draw for the reward. Thus, the more Karma Points you bid, the more likely you are to win.
