The Big Payback 2018



The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Wednesday, May 2, and Benton Hall Academy is excited to take part in this monumental event.

The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day that celebrates Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits.

Kicking off at midnight on Wednesday, May 2, the 24-hour online giving day helps organizations, like Benton Hall Academy, raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to pressing needs in our community.

Gifts made to participating organizations during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards and may help us qualify for special prizes and bonuses throughout the day.

Since its inception in 2014, Middle Tennessee’s annual day of giving has raised more than $9.3 million for nearly 1,000 area nonprofits, including schools and religious institutions. Participating organizations have received gifts from 18,806 NEW donors we may have not otherwise reached.

We hope you’ll support Benton Hall Academy and our mission on Wednesday, May 2 during The Big Payback.
