May 2, 2016

You may have heard there were major technological troubles with The Big Payback this year, and the initiative ended early. The Community Foundation is currently assessing the situation. Click to read their press release.

For the third consecutive year, Watkins is taking part in The Big Payback, a region-wide, 24-hour online giving event created to help Middle Tennessee nonprofits raise funds vital to continue their work, which directly improves the community around them.

Sponsored by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, the Big Payback begins at midnight on Tuesday, May 3. Once the clock starts, anyone can visit TheBigPayback.org or and make donations to Watkins and other participating nonprofits, including schools and religious institutions that serve the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee.
