The Big Payback, hosted by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day which shines a spotlight on LOCAL giving and motivates Middle Tennessee to give back to nonprofits in a big way.

In 2022, we are setting our sights on reaching $18,000 raised during the giving day. The first $7,000 in donations will be matched dollar for dollar, doubling the value of your gift! The more donations we receive, the greater the chance that Watershed Public Theatre will win additional cash prizes towards our goal.
