The Big PayBack

Dear Friends of Lantern Lane Farm,

On Wednesday, May 2, Lantern Lane Farm will participate again this year in The Big Payback, a community-wide, 24-hour on-line giving campaign hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.  This charitable event helps area nonprofits raise much-needed dollars and brings awareness to pressing needs in our community.

For 24-hours, beginning at 12:01 a.m., May 2, donors can make gifts to participating nonprofits that provide services in the 40 counties of middle-Tennessee.   Gifts from the public will be boosted with funds from corporate sponsors of The Big Payback. 

Emotional and mental health is essential and it carries a cost.  However, Lantern Lane Farm NEVER turns anyone away for inability to pay.  Nearly 75% of our clients are on a pro-rated or pro-bono basis.  Funds raised during The Big Payback will assist in bridging the gap between our cost to provide our services and the fees received from those we serve.

We would be so grateful if you would go on line on May 2 and make a donation to Lantern Lane Farm. With this being our first time to participate, we are eager to have a good participation.  

To donate:  

  1.  On May 2nd only, go to 

  2.  On the Lantern Lane Farm page for that day only, you will see a section that will say, "Donate Now."  (or give now).  There you can enter the amount of your gift.  

  3.  Fill in the donor information with your name, address, etc.  The minimum gift for this event is ten dollars.

We are so grateful for your prayer support and your financial support in partnering with Lantern Lane Farm and helping bring peace and healing to individuals in need.  Your gift can make an eternal difference in the lives of children, adolescents and adults who come to us for services.  Thank you, and may God bless you.
