How to Become a Member of the Porterfield Society

Barter’s future is made secure through planned gifts that help create “a community of tradition, a sense of a link between the generations,” as Barter’s founder, Robert Porterfield, so aptly expressed. Members of The Porterfield Society provide permanent and lasting support of Barter Theatre through deferred gift planning.

Gifts to The Porterfield Society include:
Bequests by will or trust
Contributions of real estate
Beneficiary designations of life insurance policies and retirement accounts
Gifts providing lifetime income (such as charitable gift annuities).

For more information on how you can provide future generations with the Barter experience, please contact our Director of Advancement & External Affairs, Jackie Blevins at either, or by calling 276-619-3303.

“The Porterfield Society exists to support Barter's goals for both the present and the future, and to keep the marvelous story of Barter and its founder alive.”
