The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on May 2nd, and the FRIENDS OF LONG HUNTER STATE PARK is excited to take part in this monumental event for the second time.

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 will help the Friends of Long Hunter State Park raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to the health and recreational aspects of our State Park.

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.

We hope you'll support our Friends group and our mission to support, improve, protect and preserve the character of Long Hunter State Park and to participate in activities for the betterment of Long Hunter Park, by giving on May 2nd during The Big Payback.

We know you use and love Long Hunter and now is the time to use your social media to let friends and family know how important our park is to you and to ask for their support. Every donation helps the FLHSP to help the park in many important ways.
