“The Shirley Charitable Foundation, through generous donations, has made concerts possible at Shirley's Historic Meetinghouse that entertains the public and teaches the amateur musician.”

“The Shirley Charitable Foundation has provided management and financial support that has enabled the Friends of the Shirley Council on Aging to undertake a number of fund raising activities resulting in the funding of a senior Outreach Coordinator, programs and services for seniors in the newly established Council on Aging Senior Center and the printing of a new Shirley telephone book. The Friends and the seniors are the beneficiaries of the Foundation’s effective leadership, support and commitment to the community.”
