The Big Payback

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s The Big Payback is a 24-hour, online giving event to increase philanthropy in the 40 counties we serve. The goal is simple – inspire Middle Tennesseans to come together, show pride in their community, and contribute to support the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations. During The Big Payback, donations to Middle Tennessee charities are accepted during a 24-hour period through our secure website——and through authorized, secure giving forms on participating nonprofits’ websites.

Registration is now open for The Big Payback 2016. Middle Tennessee public charities, schools, and tax-exempt religious institutions are eligible to participate. To sign-up, simply fill out the registration form on by March 18, 2016. Please note, 501(c)(3) public charities must also have an up-to-date profile to participate.
