During the month of April, we want to take a pause and focus our attention on our local area and the amazing philanthropies that work in Middle Tennessee. We are so proud of these organizations that dedicate their time selflessly to improving the lives of others.
All throughout this month, we want to be gearing up and planning for a very special day, May 2nd. On this day, our community comes together to participate in what is known as The Big Payback.
What is the Big Payback?
We are so glad you asked! The Big Payback is 24 hours of online giving to local charities! There’s a whole database of participating philanthropies that can be sorted by their size, mission, and needs.
The Community Foundation, which serves as a digital resource center and support network for local philanthropies, puts this event on. A large part of the event is also training non-profits on how to market themselves and raise money for their causes. The Big Payback provides training, resources, and prizes to help these organizations grow in their skills and abilities!
How Can We Get Involved?
Another great question! The Big Payback is a digital campaign so they process all donations through their website! However, you can also attend their in-person event on May 2nd in downtown Nashville. They will be celebrating all funds raised and encouraging others to join in suit. We will be there so definitely come hang out with us!
With nearly 700 non-profits already registered for the event, there are boundless opportunities to make an impact on our community. As a company, we here at Parks believe in supporting our local initiatives and being as civically engaged as possible. We hope you will join with us in celebrating these worthy causes and helping them reach their goals!
