Help Bring The Shire Downtown!

Donations are tax-deductible



We've finished our crowdfunding campaign! We'd like to give a major thank you to all of our contributors who helped us raise over $41,000! Each dollar we receive inches us closer and closer to completion. If you missed out on the crowdfunding campaign and would like to donate, our PayPal is still open and hungry. Coming forward we'll have many more fundraising events so make sure to keep your eyes open during the next several weeks.

With this initial funding, we will be able to pay for things like insurance, permits, licenses, and building renovations, bringing us closer to opening our space to the public!

There is strength in numbers—that has been our philosophy at The Shire Community Space since day one. We'd also like to give a thank you to our donors who's generous donations continue to foster our future.

We’re developing a space that fosters multi-disciplinary learning by combining an art gallery, classroom, café, and a venue for live performances. We aim to cultivate a positive vision of Modesto by creating a safe and accessible space that encourages individuals to learn, experiment, create, and share their talents, stories and struggles.
