When you support Barter Theatre, you not only ensure the continued quality of our world-class productions, but also help us to continue our community-based initiatives while also serving as a year-round draw to vitalize our local economy.

The Barter Players productions, Student Matinees, Young Playwrights Festival, and free-to-public programs such as our Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights, College Playwrights Festival, and Black in Appalachia Initiative, are just a few of the programs your donations will help support.

Together, we can improve our community and ensure that Barter Theatre remains accessible to patrons of all ages and all walks of life.

Thank you for your support!

Your Support Makes a Difference

Considering a Donation to Barter?

Barter Theatre is deeply honored by the support of hundreds of individuals and institutions. It is through the generosity of these supporters that we are able to reach 145,000 audience members each year. We gratefully acknowledge the gifts and partnerships provided by these donors.

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 Barter Theatre by individuals, the business community, corporations, foundations and government entities. In return, your tax-deductible gift supports our life-changing mission throughout our region.
