Why donate to CYTO?

CYTO is supported by Croydon Council with a grant for the lease of the Shoestring Theatre building and the provision of some workshops and activities by the Croydon Youth Arts team. We are very grateful for this help but this is by no means the full amount of funding needed to keep the organisation sustainable into the future.

We also have some fantastic funders who are supporting current projects - find out more about this on our Funders page.

However donations play a very important part in our survivial so if you can help with regular support, this is critical in keeping CYTO alive, growing and developing for future generations of young people in Croydon.

The management committee are working hard with the help of the development manager to realise many opportunities for CYTO's growth and development - to find out more please do sign up to our newsletter on our homepage and keep up-to-date with news and information on how you can help.
