The Big Payback 2020:

Envision a Collaborative Community

The Big Payback is an exciting 24-hour window to donate to your favorite local nonprofits. The clock begins ticking at 6pm on May 6, 2020.

It is the prime time during the year to give, because every gift you make to participating organizations could be boosted by cash prizes awarded throughout this community-wide celebration.

It’s clear to see the impact 24 hours dedicated to giving has made on local nonprofits. From 2014 through 2019, Middle Tennesseans have come together to raise nearly $17 million from a total of 115,890 donations for more than 1,000 nonprofits, schools, and religious institutions.

In 2020, we are setting our sights on reaching a total $20 million raised in its combined seven year history!

The shared vision of The Big Payback is in the people of the greater Nashville area, who work tirelessly each year to promote their favorite causes and do good by their neighbors.

Kharis Foundation

A message from Melinda Sanders – President, Kharis Foundation

“The Kharis Foundation has been a proud supporter of The Big Payback since its very first year.  Our board of directors is invested in the growth of Middle Tennessee’s nonprofit sector.  We strongly believe that this exciting day of giving not only celebrates the great work being done by nonprofits throughout the region but also enables them to use technology to make giving easier.

While The Big Payback lifts up our nonprofits and the life-changing work they provide, it is a collaborative effort.  The organizations that commit time and effort to engage advocates accomplish the most during the 24 hour day of giving.  By updating their GivingMatters.com profile, by utilizing the technology that is available, by being creative and passionate about their mission, nonprofits raise awareness of their work, the needs that they are addressing, and what they are accomplishing.

The Kharis Foundation applauds The Community Foundation in its work to bring about The Big Payback 2020.  We are also excited to see what the participants will accomplish on May 6th - 7th as well as how the organizations will utilize the tools provided to them while fundraising throughout the rest of the year.”
