The Big Payback 2020

May 6 - 7 2020

The Big Payback 2020 runs from 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 6 through 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 7. This community-wide fundraising event is in its 7th year, but as we all know, 2020 is a year like none other.

Here's how the Big Payback web site puts it:

Middle Tennesseans are now facing an uncertainty that stems from multiple disasters and their aftermath; loss of homes, gigs, business, and health. The economic impact is still unfolding.

These disasters have forced hundreds of organizations to slow down or suspend their important work at a time when we need them the most. They are:

Feeding the hungry ∙ Sheltering the homeless ∙ Fighting for the rights of the underserved
∙ Fostering the animals ∙ Preserving the arts ∙ Providing a safe haven ∙ Protecting the environment
∙ Teaching the children ∙ Taking care of each other.

 

At Tennessee Women’s Theater Project, we recognize that many of our loyal followers, fans and supporters - and the actors, artists, designers, and teachers we employ - are facing serious economic troubles of their own right now. The priorities of need and the lines of economic disparity in our society are more starkly evident this year than ever. We know that many people are in desperate need of support for shelter, food, medical care, child welfare, and more.

There's no denying that Tennessee Women's Theater Project needs money too. While we hibernate for now, we are working out what are the standards that must be met before we can consider rehearsing, performing, and welcoming an audience to the theater with the assurance that we can all be safe from COVID-19.

So, on Big Payback Day, please give if you can, according to your own priorities for helping deserving nonprofits. If you choose to include Tennessee Women's Theater Project, we are grateful indeed, and we promise to put your donation to good use in pursuit of our mission to celebrate and serve women through theater arts.
