The Big Payback 2020

Calling all Nashville Jazz Workshop friends and supporters! The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s Big Payback Event is just around the corner. Starting Wednesday, May 6 at 6pm, you’ll have 24 hours to show how much you value the work of NJW and its contribution to the musical life of our community.

Here’s how it works: from 6pm Wednesday, May 6 to 6pm Thursday, May 7, visit NJW’s page on the Big Payback Site and make on online gift to support great jazz in our community. Any amount, large or small, is welcome.

The Nashville Jazz Workshop has participated in this event for several years and we have been gratified to receive gifts from so many of our loyal patrons and new friends. This year, we need to hear from you more than ever.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Make an online gift to the NJW on May 6-7 by visiting
  • Spread the word to your friends and associates, share the link, and encourage them to give in support of local jazz.

IMPORTANT: The Big Payback offers special incentives for the most dollars raised during several time periods during the day. Last year, thanks to your generous response, we received an additional prize from the Community Foundation for raising the most money during the lunch hour.

We’re again targeting the lunch hour, 11am to 1pm on Thursday, May 7 for the most donors and the largest donation amount. So please be ready to give during that time period and spread the word to your friends and fellow music lovers.

With your help, we can raise much-needed funds and build awareness for the NJW at the same time. Thank you!
