The Big Payback


The Estuary is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  We are thankful for each tax-deductible donation that is made to The Estuary.


The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Wednesday, May 2, and The Estuary is excited to take part in this monumental event.  We will use the funds received to help fund a chair lift for our clients who are unable to climb the stairs to our 2nd-floor offices.

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 2, the 24-hour online giving day helps organizations, like The Estuary, 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 $9.3 million for nearly 1,000 area nonprofits, including schools and religious institutions. Participating organizations have received gifts from 18,806 NEW donors we may have not otherwise reached.

We hope you’ll support The Estuary on Wednesday, May 2 during The Big Payback and help us in our mission to install a chair lift for our clients!
