Chrysalis exists because of gifts -- the gift of an extraordinary educational vision from our founders, the gifts of the many talented teachers who nurtured that vision along the way, and the gifts of countless families that continue to sustain the kind, supportive community that we all cherish. Please help shape Chrysalis' future with your gift.

Ways to give:

Chrysalis Annual Fund -- Donations to the Annual Giving Campaign support all the things you know and love about Chrysalis: the amazing staff, science, nature, extracurriculars, and so much more. Especially important are pledges and recurring gifts that allow you to make a gift over time.

Every gift, from 5 dollars to 5 grand, makes a huge difference.
Here's some examples:

$5 - Covers the cost of a field trip for 1 student — no child is ever denied the opportunity to attend a trip due to inability to pay
$20 - Replaces a worn out soccer ball 
$50 - Support a child to come camping with Chrysalis who otherwise couldn't afford to come -(fingers crossed we can go to Yosemite this spring!)
$200 - Buys hands-on science materials for an elementary classroom
$500 - Gives us new chairs or desks for classrooms
$1200 - Gives us one of three generators needed to keep the power on and school open during a power shut-off (that plus some electrical work and we’ll be able to stay open when the power is out)
