Rutherford Books from Birth Participating in The Big Payback
The Big Payback, Tennessee’s 4th Annual Giving Day, Encourages Middle Tennesseans to Give Local and Support Nonprofits during 24-Hour Campaign
Rutherford Books from Birth is participating in The Big Payback, a 24-hour, online giving event created to help Middle Tennessee nonprofits raise funds vital to continuing their work and directly improving the community around them. This is the second year that Rutherford Books from Birth is taking part in the event. Rutherford Books from Birth is operated in partnership with the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation and the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties.
Presented by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, this region’s dedicated day of giving begins at midnight on Wednesday, May 3 and runs for 24 hours. Once the clock starts, anyone can visit TheBigPayback.org and make donations to Rutherford Books from Birth and other participating nonprofits - including schools and religious institutions - serving the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee.
The Big Payback has made a tremendous impact on the Middle Tennessee community, helping raise more than $6.75 million for area organizations during the last three years of giving days.
Gifts from the public during The Big Payback are boosted with funds from sponsors of the event, which provide multiple opportunities for Rutherford Books from Birth to vie for financial incentives and additional prizes. The real-time leaderboard hosted on TheBigPayback.org tracks donations and creates additional excitement surrounding the day.
“Nonprofits do important, life-changing work every day across Middle Tennessee,” said Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. “The Big Payback has become an exciting opportunity for us to come together as a community to support their efforts and recognize the positive impact they have on our neighbors. It’s an easy, fun and a meaningful way for us to show our local pride, give back, and make an enormous impact in the process.”
