Why Support CYT?

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, CYT Seattle aims to serve our community by providing quality, educational theatre arts programs and productions at an accessible price to all interested families. We believe in validating and celebrating the artistic expression and hearts of all of our youth in a safe, compassionate environment. Unfortunately, ticket sales and class tuition only cover about 70% of our operating budget. We need loving, committed, service-minded donors who believe in our mission to help keep us in business! Every dollar you contribute assures that CYT can continue to deliver top-notch affordable programming to all who need it.  Please, help us reach our financial goals and develop character one stage at a time.

Give Our Kids a "Standing O"

Standing “O” Society is a donor benefits program consisting of a group of individuals and businesses committed to the continued support and growth of CYT in Seattle. This philanthropic support is critical for CYT Seattle to continue to make classes, programs, and shows affordable to all Seattle & surrounding area youth. Because the program involves new students every year, in addition to those continuing, it is critically important to generate consistent sources of revenue.

Would you consider supporting CYT with your tax-deductible financial donation? While your contribution of any amount will be greatly appreciated, gifts of $100 or more are eligible for inclusion in Standing “O” Society, our donor benefits program (Donor perks Include: complimentary tickets & CYT swag, your name listed in our List of Donors on our playbills and promo materials, Corporate Logos on our promo materials & playbills, & more!).

If you are interested in a recurring monthly donation email us today, seattle@cyt.org

CYT Seattle's Dream Theatre Space

With a dream facility like this, CYT Seattle can serve so many kids and families with quality theatre arts programming, as well as be of service to other organizations within our community who would benefit from using our space! Please, consider donating to CYT Seattle to help make this dream a reality for our kids! 

Donor Benefits

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.
