What is Chrysalis?

Chrysalis is our  annual fundraiser featuring both live and silent auctions to collect funds for Mount St. Mary Academy. 
Proceeds from the event go towards providing our students with endless opportunities. At MSM, we encourage each student to "write their own story" and be the best version of themselves. Support from our community is how we are able to have the resources to fulfil our school's mission. 

Whether the financial support goes towards scholarships, building amenities, program updates, extracurricular opportunities, new academic tools, or more - the focus is always on our students.  

Gift Gathering Parties

A gift-gathering party is a wonderful way to support our Chrysalis Auction. A gift-gathering party offers friends of Mount St. Mary Academy an opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow supporters of the school. Each guest is asked to bring a donation to the party or dinner.

Host a party for your classmates and friends! To host a gift gathering party, please contact Coordinator of Annual Giving and Events, Marissa Brandel Palumbo' 19, at (716) 877-1358 ext. 304 or email:
