Item Donations

ShirleyArts! is a 501c3 Charitable Organization, so your donations are tax deductible. We have ongoing needs for many items. Please check back for more specific needs. Thank you!

Items always needed:

  • Batteries (specifically D and AAA)

  • Electrical Tape in different colors

  • Glow Tape

  • Paint brushes/rollers

  • Gift cards (Joanne's Fabrics, Michael's craft stores, Lowe's, Staples, etc.)

  • Personal care items (safety pins, bobby pins, hair clips)

Monetary Donations

We are always appreciative of monetary donations for our annual scholarships, free and reduced tuition programs, teacher and staff stipends, and instrument purchases.

The operation of our theater program has a tremendous amount of associated costs donations can help mitigate. Such background costs include dry cleaning of costumes, props procurement, set purchasing and building, hiring of musicians and staff, royalties for the show and music, rental of rehearsal and performance spaces, and sound and lighting equipment.

In addition, financial support for insurance coverage and storage space help fund our organization as a whole.

Checks made payable to ShirleyArts! are also appreciated. They can be sent to P.O. Box 49, Shirley, MA 01464.
