Annual Fund for Artistic Excellence
"I've never left a Barter production without feeling better about the world."
— Dean Edwards, Barter Patron and Corporate Donor
Barter Theatre's Annual Fund for Artistic Excellence helps sustain everything you cherish about Barter as a hub of artistic vitality, educational innovation, economic strength and regional pride.
Because ticket sales generate only 65% of Barter’s income, we rely on investment in the Annual Fund by individuals, the business community, foundations and government entities. In return, your tax-deductible gift supports our life-changing mission throughout our region.
THE BARTER MISSION:
Enriching Lives Through Extraordinary Theatre
Barter is a resident company of passionate professional artists and leaders dedicated to serving and enriching our region by creating live theatre in repertory; by providing a nurturing environment for all involved; by embracing and celebrating Appalachia; by being stewards of the legacy of Barter Theatre; by using theatre as a vehicle for education; and by providing audiences, both youth and adult, with an extraordinary and enlightening experience each and every time they engage with us.
Investors in the Annual Fund may enjoy invitations to exclusive events, opening night performances and advance notice on special events. Click HERE for information on Annual Fund donor levels and benefits.
