The Big Payback is on May 3, 2016 and NAIA is excited to take part in this monumental charity 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 the Native American Indian Association, 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. From 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 the Native American Indian Association and our mission to help the Indian people in Tennessee to achieve the following goals:
- Improve the services in education and decrease illiteracy.
- Expand job opportunities and promote better employment.
- Increase knowledge and awareness of Indian culture.
- Promote Indian unity and organization.
- Improve services for daycare, housing, health, social services, and nutrition for low-income Indian people.
