Ways to Give to Chrysalis

We appreciate our generous community and families supporting Chrysalis and helping us meet our day-to-day needs thank you!

If you have any questions about contributing, please contact Terri Johnson at 208-770-2770 or 

Annual Fundraising

Chrysalis has a variety of different fundraising activities focused on providing operational support to Chrysalis friends and staff. 

Some examples: 

Through these annual giving opportunities, Chrysalis closes the financial gap ($1600 per client) between Medicaid payments and the actual cost of providing exceptional services to our friends. 

Business Sponsorship Opportunities

Chrysalis has different levels of business sponsorship available.  For more information, please contact Terri Johnson at 208-770-2770 or 

Endowment Fund

The primary goal of Chrysalis’ Endowment Fund is to maintain Chrysalis services long into the future. With the fear that Medicaid may at some point no longer reimburse agencies for the therapies that Chrysalis provides, we want to be sure that we continue to serve our friends and their families.

Planned Giving

Our mission is to offer emerging discoveries to children and adults with intellectual and mental health challenges. Including Chrysalis in your estate planning helps us to continue to provide amazing services to our clients, provides you with a significant tax saving benefit, and is a convenient way to invest in the mission of Chrysalis. 

Vehicle Donation

Donating your vehicle is a convenient method of supporting Chrysalis.  We do ask that vehicles are in decent shape with no looming repairs needed other than oil, filer and tire changes. 

In-Kind Gifts

We appreciate and depend on material gifts. With these contributions Chrysalis is able to use their budgeted money elsewhere to support the needs of the business.
