Chrysalis Foundation Grant

We don’t grant wishes. We grant knowledge and strength.

Chrysalis invests in the safety, security, education, and economic empowerment of girls and women in our community. We do this in partnership with agencies and services vital to girls’ and women’s success through grants, community education, and donor support. 

Funding Areas

  • Safety: Freedom from violence, unsafe and unhealthy living conditions, and homelessness. 
  • Security: Mental, physical, and behavioral well-being.
  • Education: High School/Equivalent graduation, job and employment readiness skills.
  • Economic Empowerment: Stable employment, sufficient income, and the capacity to make and act upon economic decisions.
