The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Wednesday, May 3, and THE ARTS PLACE is excited to take part in this monumental event for the fourth time.


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 helps organizations, like The Arts Place, 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 may 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. 


We hope you’ll support The Arts Place and our mission to enhance life skills and character in each student by building self - confidence, boldness, maturity, and hope on Wednesday, May 3 during The Big Payback.

The Arts Place is proud to support Haiti with our "It Is Well" project.  We endeavor to raise $5,500.00, the cost to build a well to help in this dire situation.

50% of the deaths in Haiti are due to water borne diseases.

70% of the population does not have access to safe water.

Safe water is Haiti's most urgent problem.
