The Big Payback
About The Big Payback
The Big Payback is a community-wide, online giving day hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Over the past 8 years, this initiative has raised millions of dollars for non-profit organizations in the 40 counties that make up Middle Tennessee.
This is our third year to participate, and considering last year’s success, we’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $5,000 between 6 pm on May 4th and 6 pm on May 5th. All donations will go through The Big Payback website. The Big Payback does NOT receive a portion of your donation, nor does it cost us anything to participate! Only the normal processing fees from credit card companies will be deducted, and the rest of the donation comes directly to The Pregnancy Care Center.
How to Participate
There are a variety of fun ways to participate in this campaign.
· Contests: The Big Payback offers cash prizes ($1,000) through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee for various contests throughout the giving period. We have chosen to participate in a handful of these contests for donations made at specific times of day (see images below).
· Peer-to-Peer fundraising: There is also an opportunity to set up a peer-to-peer campaign on your social media pages, similar to GoFundMe or Facebook campaigns. We recently sent an email with more information about this option.
· Leader board: Keep track of giving on the live updated leader boards. It’s so exciting to see donations coming in real-time and to watch us getting closer to our goal.
