Shirley Charitable Foundation
Our Vision ~
Lead the Town of Shirley to become one of the best small
towns in America by creating a friendly, thriving, vibrant,
sustainable community which improves the quality of life
for Shirley Residents.


Partnering with Other Town Organizations

    The Shirley Charitable Foundation has partnered with local organizations to leverage the power of combined efforts. In every town there are many organizations all marching to a mission with a group of dedicated volunteers. Many times their efforts are duplicated between organizations without realizing who is doing what. The idea of partnering with organizations under the umbrella of the Foundation's "Celebrate Shirley" allows minds to come together to host events in which multiple organizations can be involved leveraging everyone's membership base. Check our Celebrate Shirley calendar to follow what is happening in town and get involved to help out. Remember that every community is only as good as we all help to make it.

The Shirley Connection Social Services Website

    The Shirley Charitable Foundation in partnership the Community Assistance Collaborative has secured a grant from the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts in collaboration with the Greater Lowell Community Foundation from the Nashoba Valley Health Care Fund. This grant will fund the development of a community website called the "Shirley Connection" containing a database of information for an array of health and human services with pertinent contacts. This centralized database of information will help individuals navigate through the complexity of obtaining needed services. The website is designed to direct people to appropriate sources for social services offered to residents of Shirley.

"The construction of an outdoor classroom would not have been possible without the gracious donation given to us by the Shirley Charitable Foundation which covered the cost of the roof trusses needed for the structure.This classroom is also being constructed as part of a local Eagle Scout’s project and the remainder of the materials were donated by Circle B Barns of Lancaster. The Shirley Charitable Foundation has a long history of supporting the local Fire Department with purchasing vitally needed equipment that helps us to better protect the residents and visitors of the Town of Shirley."
