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.

Standing O Club

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” Club 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. CYT is looking to the leaders of today who truly believe that funds invested in youth are an investment in our future. This goes to the heart of the CYT mission. Charitable support allows CYT to grow and enhance the quality of the training and productions. A gift to CYT Fredericksburg is an investment with an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide children a safe, wholesome environment, and provides skills to make better life choices and become positive contributing members of their community.
