Help Us Keep the Lights On
"CYT has prepared me in many ways for my future. CYT has taught me how to speak in front of a crowd, how to balance school work with outside activities, commit to something and stick with it, and most importantly, CYT has taught me how to be bold and make new friends." - A CYT Student
A gift to CYT is an investment in an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide children a safe, wholesome environment and provides them with skills to make better life choices and become positive contributing members of their community. CYT allows young people to explore the arts in an atmosphere that nurtures their inner creativity while developing their character...one stage at a time.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, CYT Kansas City serves the community by providing quality, affordable educational programs, and productions. Unfortunately, even in normal times, revenue from classes, productions, and camps does not completely cover our operating costs. Now as COVID-19 has changed nearly every aspect of our daily lives, CYT Kansas City needs your help just to keep our lights on. Although we are working with a skeleton crew and saving where we can, the postponement of our gala, cancellation of much of our spring and summer programming, and scaling back our upcoming programming to adhere to health and safety guidelines means that CYT KC is not receiving the revenue it relies on to operate. Any donation you can make will help us continue to operate during this time and ensure that we are able to enrich the lives of children and families in our community for years to come.
Your tax-deductible gift will have a tremendous impact in the lives of hundreds of kids.
