Why Support CYT?

Christian Youth Theater is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization with EIN (56-2604290).  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 is the single greatest thing I will ever be apart of. It has shaped who I am today and I wouldn't change one second of it. It has given me friends when I had none. It has given me life and it has given me hope.

How Can I Help?

AmazonSmile
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select Christian Youth Theater Houston before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases.  The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling,giftwrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.

Vehicle Donation
CYT is pleased to have a new partnership with CARS™, a national vehicle donation program.  This program is a great opportunity for anyone to support CYT’s mission and donate unwanted vehicles.  CARS™ will accept almost anything that is in one piece and towable: cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, planes, ATVs, even farm equipment. Their customer service center is open seven days a week and they have over 1,000 vendors across the U.S., allowing for pickup of your vehicle at your convenience. Your donation is tax deductible!

“Standing O” Society
The CYT Standing “O” Club is part of our commitment to excellence and provides
support that CYT can count on! Members of the “Standing O” Society are people or
businesses who support CYT with a monthly or special monetary gift. 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.

Our annual budget pays for costumes, sets, props, sound, lights, rentals of theaters and classroom spaces, teacher stipends, artistic team stipends, curriculum writing and design, royalties and many other training and production costs. Only about 80% of the total comes from ticket sales and tuition and fees. Philanthropic support is also critical to CYT to continue to make the program affordable. Without charitable support, the CYT program could not be sustained at a reasonable cost to the students.

Scholarships
CYT aims to give access to theater arts for all kids regardless of financial situation. As such CYT makes scholarships available to families in need. Scholarships are available for up to half of one class tuition. Your donations help give kids who wouldn’t otherwise have the chance an opportunity to participate in our programs.
