Columbus Youth Ballet (CYB) has been a consistent entity in Columbus, Ohio for more than 15 years. We are experiencing a rebirth of our dance studio and an increase in service opportunities. In order for us to continue our efforts in providing scholarships, training, summer dance intensives, as well as productions, we are in desperate need of monetary support!   

As with many arts organizations, CYB is not impervious to the struggles of financial hardships in order to fulfill our mission. The purpose of this request is to solicit your specific support. Our goal is to raise $5000 monthly through December 31, 2017. That equates to:

·        50 people donating $100

·        100 people donating $50

·        We work with organizations that will match your CORPORATE donation dollar for dollar. There are organizations that will match your generosity of $500 and above, for both private AND corporate contributions!

·        Every amount counts, No donation is too small

·        Ongoing contributions can be SAFELY and SECURELY debited from your credit and debit cards, ACH withdrawals, and PayPal accounts.

Any financial donation can be classified as a tax-deductible contribution. Any business contribution over $100 will receive advertisement space on our social media platforms. Both personal and business donations will appear in our Nutcracker and Recital programs, and again, on our Social Media pages.

 Please help make a difference in our community by contributing to the success of our superb organization.

For your convenience, we have listed a direct link to our Website’s Donate Button, our GoFundMe campaign, and the address of the studio should you decide to mail in your gift
