Ways You Can Give

CYSA is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status. If you are interested in helping to support the important work CYSA does on behalf of YSBs statewide, please email us directly at cysa@ctyouthservices.org.

In Memoriam Gifts

Make a donation in memory of a deceased loved one or friend. Connecticut Youth Services Association will send a
personalized card to the family of the deceased acknowledging your thoughtful gift.

In Honor Gifts

Make a donation in honor of a loved one’s special milestone or event. Honoring a person in this way shows you care both for the honoree, and about the persons whose lives your gift will touch. CYSA will send a personalized card to the honoree acknowledging your gift.

Matching Gifts

Many companies support charitable organizations like CYSA through matching gift programs. This means they encourage employees to donate by matching their contributions dollar for dollar. Each company has its own guidelines. Find out by contacting your company’s personnel or human resource office.


The simplest way to give in the future is through a bequest in your will. You also benefit from an estate tax deduction for the value of your gift.
