Big Payback Raises $2.6 Million

Posted at 7:26 PM, May 19, 2016

Despite nationwide tech troubles, The Big Payback was still a huge success.

During the event earlier this month, the website was only live for nine hours, but more than $2.6 million was raised on the third annual "day of giving."

Since the website crashed mid-morning, non-profits involved were encouraged to keep raising money independently for two days.

The money raised will benefit 770 non-profits in Middle Tennessee. Last year, they raised $ 2.64 million.
