The Big Payback is back today, Tuesday, May 5.  This 24-hour, online giving event is designed to increase philanthropy in the 40 counties they serve. The goal is simple – inspire Middle Tennesseans to come together, show their pride in their community, and contribute to support the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations. Donations will be accepted in a 24 hour period through their secure website and through authorized, secure giving forms on participating nonprofits’ websites.

Learn more, see a list of participating non-profits, and learn how your non-profit organization, school or religious institution can participate at The Big Payback.

How It Works
Starting at 12 a.m. on Tuesday, May 5, lasting 24 hours, donors can make gifts to participating nonprofits located in or providing services in the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee. Donations will be amplified by matching funds, bonuses, and additional prizes. It will be a race to the finish!
