Select your donation's designation:

Footlights is a publication exploring the work of Christian Youth Theater. It’s a quarterly gift to the Standing “O’ Society”, a membership group of individuals and businesses committed to a monthly or annual monetary gift to their local CYT Branch.

We publish a new issue every quarter. “Standing O’” Society members will automatically receive Footlights with a recurring monthly donation over $25 OR an annual gift over $300. If you like this issue and want to make sure you keep getting more, sign up to become a monthly supporter.

Why Support CYT?

Christian Youth Theater is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. 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 program and achieve its goals in develop character in children one stage at a time.

I truly believe that God sent me to CYT as a kind of a Guardian Angel to help me with my task of overcoming anxiety.

"Standing O" Society

The CYT “Standing O” Society 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 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.  Just click on the button below and make your donation a "recurring payment" of $25.00 or more and you will receive the following benefits:
  • Recognition in show playbills for the season
  • Invitation to an annual "Standing O" special event
  • Recipient of a quarterly Footlights Newsletter

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.

Impact

It costs roughly $25,000 to bring CYT to a new city and this year we want to partner with you to bring CYT to not just one, but TWO NEW COMMUNITIES. With a total goal of $50,000, and a deadline of December 31st, we hope you will help us GIVE CYT this year.
