CMC Education Foundation is participating in The Big Payback!

The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Wednesday, May 3, and the CMC Education Foundation is excited to take part in this monumental event for the third time.

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 3, the 24-hour online giving day helps organizations, like the CMC Education Foundation, 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 $6.75 million for nearly 800 area nonprofits, including schools and religious institutions.
