The Big Payback 2017

View Calendar

The Big Payback is Wednesday, May 3

The Big Payback is a community-wide, 24-hour online giving challenge hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. This charitable event will help area nonprofits raise much-needed dollars and bring awareness to pressing needs in our community.

In 2017, The Big Payback boasts a brand-new software platform and welcomes back our biggest sponsors for a fourth consecutive year – helping to make Middle Tennessee’s largest day of giving a success.

In the past three years, The Big Payback has helped raise more than $6.5 million dollars for nearly 800 local nonprofits – including schools and religious institutions.

On Wednesday, May 3rd, let’s show everyone just how generous Middle Tennessee residents are when we support each other.

Safe Harbor’s goal for The Big Payback 2017 is to raise $8,000 in 24 hours to create a lifeline for sanctuary animals, which will allow the rescue to respond to pressing emergencies. This emergency allowance will sit outside of operational funds and only tapped into in times of crisis. This lifeline turns a no to a yes, and saves lives of the most disenfranchised.

    Join the Safe Harbor team for a prospective volunteer open house!

    Volunteer orientation is held every 2 to 3 months for individuals who want to learn how to become part of a growing team. We are a 100% volunteer organization, and every helping hand is valued.

    Come dressed for the weather, with closed toe, farm appropriate shoes.  Orientation takes about 2 hours start to finish, and it is HANDS on.  Yes, you will learn to muck a stall, groom a horse, and do other things that happen day to day in the barn, so please come dressed appropriately, and with an open mind and willingness to get a little dirty.

    Because we do also discuss policies, orientation is appropriate for ages 12 and up.  *Parents, if you want to volunteer with your children you can bring them to volunteer once you are trained, so you can supervise them at the farm.

    Orientation starts promptly at the scheduled time.  Please try to arrive no more than 15 minutes early, and don't be late.
