Mark Your Calendars: The Big Payback is May 3, 2016
The countdown is on for Middle Tennessee’s largest online giving day, The Big Payback! Last year, more than 14,435 donors came together in a big way to “pay back” the nonprofits raising more than $2.65 million for the community in 24 hours. In 2016, let’s show everyone just how generous Middle Tennessee residents are when we support each other.
The Big Payback is a community-wide, 24 hour online giving challenge hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. This charitable event helps area nonprofits raise much-needed dollars and bring awareness to pressing needs in our communities.
How It Works
For 24 hours, from midnight to 11:59 p.m. CST on May 3, 2016, donors can make gifts to participating nonprofits, schools, and religious institutions located in or providing services in the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee. Gifts from the public will be boosted with funds from corporate sponsors of The Big Payback. Nonprofits will vie for financial incentives and additional prizes which are tracked in real time on the online leaderboard.
For more information, go to TheBigPayBack.org.
We are a group of people who are passionate about helping children

Our Recent Lunch-N-Learn
We are so very grateful to our sponsors, Pinnacle Bank, Legacy Investment Planning and Innovations Group for making this lunch and learn possible!!! Thank you to all the people who came out to learn more about what Tucker’s House is doing to make the homes of children with special needs ages 3-22 yrs accessible, safer and an environment that they can be as independent as possible!
People that attended said they didn’t realize what a serious issue this is in our community! It is a REAL and sadly INEXHAUSTIBLE NEED!!! Please visit our website to hear more at www.tuckershouse.org.
For the last 6 years, I have assessed, drawn the plans, construction managed, managed volunteers, raised the funds, wrote grants, educated the community, and taken care of the business of Tucker’s House. Sandra Zaccari, a pediatric physical therapist and I have assessed 86 homes and done over 200 projects.
We now have someone that is helping raise the funds and write grants and I am training a construction manager. It is vital that we staff up to be able to handle this incredible need! I can’t do it alone and I am grateful that the word is getting out there and people are are realizing what a huge problem this is!!!
I received a call from a therapist from a premiere Therapy Center in Atlanta that said, Tucker’s House is so vital and we need a Tucker’s House everywhere in the United States. That is a huge vision….but right now, we just want to make sure we are serving the Middle Tennessee children to our very best ability!!!
Thank you to those that support the mission of Tucker’s House!!! These precious children and their families thank you too!!!
