It's time to payback our nonprofits.
Nonprofits play an essential role across the region – in health, arts, environment, education and social services. In today’s economic environment, these organizations need to accomplish much more with much less.
To celebrate Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and “payback” the work of nonprofits, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee came up with something “big.”
The Big Payback, presented by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a region-wide, 24-hour online giving event created to help nonprofits raise funds vital to continue their work, which directly improves the community around them.
From 6 a.m. on May 6 until 6 a.m. on May 7, anyone can visit TheBigPayback.org and make donations to their choice of participating nonprofits, including schools and churches, that serve the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee.
Before her death, Gail had the opportunity to learn and write about Nashville’s homeless problem. In particular, she was impressed with a multi-organizational effort to help people get into an apartment by addressing the specific needs that led them to the streets.
This included not only the resources to secure housing, but dealing with practical issues – like filing the proper paperwork and transportation – that often keep people from accessing the help they need. It was Gail’s vision to raise funds to support these programs and get Nashville’s homeless off the street, one at a time.
