Why Support CYT?

Christian Youth Theater is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization (FEIN: 47-1267537) . Since revenue from ticket sales and class tuition is not enough to cover operating costs, every dollar you contribute assures that CYT can continue to deliver top-notch affordable programming and achieve its goals in developing character in children and adults one stage at a time.
CYT relies on the donations of patrons so we can provide quality theater education across the country. According to “The Value and Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles”, students who participate in the arts do better in school, stay in school longer, and win more academic awards. They are also three times more likely to go to college and become more confident, considerate, pro-social and pro-civic citizens! Your generous donation ensures that our students are given these benefits, so that they can go on to build a stronger world for future generations.

On Dec. 1, 2020 -- #GivingTuesday -- our community came together to prove we really are All in This Together. Thanks to your generosity and support, we were able to raise more than $13,000—enough to KEEP CYT available to local students and maintain current best practices throughout the winter session. Thank you!

For those who still want to contribute to the impact that CYT is having in our community, every act of generosity counts! Join us in CYT’s mission to develop character and creativity by giving your time, talent, a donation, and/or the power of your voice.

That support is vital to the financial health of CYT and helps us continue to provide training in the arts in an atmosphere of excellence.


CYT aims to give access to theater arts for all kids regardless of their financial situation. As such, CYT makes scholarships available to families in need.
