It's 'Payback' time in Middle Tennessee


Posted: May 1, 2017

MURFREESBORO - The Big Payback is returning this Wednesday and Journeys is excited to take part in this monumental event for the third year in a row.


The online "annual giving day," hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, celebrates Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits like Journeys.


Donations can be made to organizations by visiting


The 24-hour event kicks off at midnight and helps organizations raise much-needed funds, while also bringing awareness to pressing needs throughout Middle Tennessee.


Journeys is also scheduled to participate in a special celebration of The Big Payback on Wednesday at Cannonsburg Village in Murfreesboro between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Cash and check donations can be accepted at Journeys' booth at the "Big Payback Rutherford Rally."


"The Rutherford and Cannon County community will come together to stand behind the community's nonprofit sector," a news release concerning the rally states. "Nonprofits from around the community will gather to showcase their work and mission. Music, food trucks, giveaways, special performance and a BIG surprise. The Pep Rally takes place at noon...bring your sign and toot your organization at the noon pep rally (big enough for the media to notice)!"


Gifts made to participating organizations during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards and may help Journeys 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.


We hope you’ll support Journeys and our mission to support adults with disabilities in choosing and realizing their visions of where and how they live, work and socialize!
