Building a Stronger Foundation in a Caring Community

The residents of the Town of Shirley, MA have long worked hard together to build a better place – a place where a sense of "community" prevails. They are people who are interested in helping each other in good times and difficult times. They know that health and human service programs, arts and cultural activities, and educational and recreational opportunities are all vital to the wellbeing of a community.

The Shirley Charitable Foundation distributes grants not only to enable support for a wide range of deserving community activities, but also offers a way for donors and partners to accomplish charitable objectives which may be difficult to achieve when acting alone. Together we can make a significant impact on the quality of life within our community…please join us!
