Planned Giving

The Heritage Society of 1881 was created to build long-term stability for the future of the Newberry Opera House and the future of Newberry. It will provide an extra stream of income to meet the increasing demands of our world, the higher prices of artists, the cost of marketing the Opera House and our region, and the costs of maintaining a historic facility. We invite you to invest in tomorrow by joining the Heritage Society of 1881 today!

A Member of the Heritage Society is anyone who informs the Newberry Opera House Foundation that he or she has made provisions in their will, or estate plan, naming the Newberry Opera House Foundation a beneficiary. In doing so your name will be prominently displayed in the Newberry Opera House. These commitments will insure a vibrant life for the Opera House.
