This year “GIVE CYT” is taking on a whole new meaning. 2020 marks 40 years since the founding of CYT, and in this year alone, CYT Branches around the Country have faced more challenges than any other year in our history. With wildfires destroying homes and venues, Hurricanes wiping out whole cities, and a global pandemic halting programming at every turn, CYT has been hit hard.

CYT Inc. is the licensor of the CYT brand and provides the tools and means necessary to keep Branches operating. CYT Branches pay a licensing fee to CYT Inc. in order to operate under the Brand of “CYT". During this past year, Branches have been unable to host programming, therefore unable to generate revenue that would allow them to pay licensing fees in full. In an effort to provide as much COVID Relief as possible for every Branch, CYT Inc. has provided a 40% reduction in their monthly fees from September through the end of the year. Our hope is to do everything we can to keep CYT Branches open in the 26 cities where it currently exists. This year, starting with #GivingTuesday, our goal is to raise funds to help make up for the loss in licensing fees in light of these hard challenges, as we move through this season and into a more hopeful and promising tomorrow. 

God has provided for CYT for 40 years, and we trust Him to continue to provide for the next 40 and beyond. The CYT mission and spirit are strong and families in CYT Branches around the Country continue to band together to hold on to character, community, and creativity during these times. We ask that you pray and consider giving to help us see the mission of CYT live on and serve many families for decades to come.

CYT has been a huge part of my grandchildren's life beginning when they were 8 years old. The organization nourishes talent, respect, kind hearts, care for the wellbeing of each other. I love the productions, workshops, and comradery observed first hand. Hope this helps to keep a fantastic organization to be able to continue.
