The Big Payback FRIENDS OF WARNER PARKS PARTICIPATED IN THE BIG PAYBACK. The Big Payback annual giving day occurred on Wednesday, May 3, and Friends of Warner Parks was excited to take part in this monumental event for the fourth year in a row. SAVE THE DATE for next year, May 2, 2018. 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 helped organizations, like Friends of Warner Parks, 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 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. THANK YOU to everyone that supported Friends of Warner Parks this year! Together, we raised almost $5,000 towards various Park projects. We hope you’ll continue to support Friends of Warner Parks and our mission to preserve, protect & steward the Warner Parks next year during The Big Payback and throughout the year as well!
