As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations to TYR are tax deductible, and donors are, at minimum, recognized in our monthly newsletters, event programs and Annual Reports. Examples of donation opportunities throughout the year include:

Art for Recovery and the TYR Gala

  • Sponsorships
  • In-kind donations

TYR holds one major fundraising event, Art for Recovery, each year in September. Sponsorship is a great way to increase the visibility of your brand and solidify your image as a company that cares about your community. Additionally, the costs of TYR’s events have historically been offset by generous in-kind donations of supplies, food, beverages, and professional services.
