help meet the Andrea S. Gordon Legacy Challenge

as a former Chrysalis board member, Andrea “Andi” Gordon was instrumental in the launch of Chrysalis After-School programs in 1998, and continues to be a strong advaocate and generous donor to Chrysalis today.

in recognition of the foundation’s 30th year, Andi has challenged us to raise $60,000 in support of Chrysalis After-School GirlPower programs, which train high school girls to deliver program curriculum to elementary and middle school programs throughout the year.  once achieved, Andi will give $30,000 to increase each dollar donated by 50% - for a total of $90,000 to sustain GirlPower programming for years to come.

give today to help us meet the challenge and increase your gift by 50%!  but hurry - we have until June 26 to raise $60,000!

help chrysalis meet the challenge!
