Why The Big Payback matters, even if you don’t live in Middle Tennessee

Recently, I’ve been posting a ton of stuff on social media about the upcoming event The Big Payback, which is the local “day of giving” for the Middle Tennessee region. I’m very excited to be working with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to help train nonprofits on how to leverage this online giving day to increase their social media presence and cultivate donor relationships! But even if you don’t live in Middle Tennessee, I want you to get excited about the Big Payback too, because The Big Payback podcast episodes I’m creating (coming out in March & April!) can still benefit your organization.

Two Types of Grants

In Season 2, Episode 10, I spoke with grant reviewers from two different types of grant making organizations--a Giving Circle, and a Community Foundation. I asked Mollie from Impact Nashville and Michael from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to shed some light on how each of these grant making organizations function, and how grant seekers can make their grants stand out among the crowd.
