The Big Payback is back on May 3, 2016, and the Cooper Trooper Foundation is excited to take part in this monumental charitable event for the second time. The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a 24-hour, community-wide, online giving day that celebrates Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits.

The Big Payback helps organizations, like Cooper Trooper Foundation, raise much-needed funds while bringing awareness to pressing needs in our communities. Donations made during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards made possible through sponsors, which may help us to qualify for prizes and bonuses through the day.

The Big Payback has seen remarkable growth from its inaugural event in 2014. In year one, Middle Tennessee came together to raise $1,492,492.50 for 525 participating nonprofits. More than 11,600 gifts were made to organizations focused on health and human services, animal welfare, the arts and more. In 2015, donations increased to more than $2.65 million helping to support 770 Middle Tennessee nonprofits. We hope you’ll support Cooper Trooper Foundation and our mission to help families who are fighting childhood cancer, through pediatric cancer research and sibling support, on Tuesday, May 3 during The Big Payback.
