Billy Ray Shirley Foundation
Founded in September 2011 in the wake of the tragic killing of 17 year old Billy Ray Shirley, III in late August of 2011, our vision is to build and maintain a fully functional state of the art community center on the east side of Tacoma that gives life to Billy Ray’s vision of having a fun, healthy & safe place for youth to go. This facility shall be one that will provide the programs and resources necessary to engage youth in conversation and activities that will promote positive life choices. Additionally, our non-profit 501(c)3 youth program will look to reinforce education, decrease violence and encourage healthy lifestyles while inspiring individuals to work at continuously building their communities regardless of social or economic boundaries.

The Imagine Eastside Campaign
The Imagine Eastside Campaign will serve twice the number of youth currently served in East Tacoma. A fabulous new Eastside Community Center — with a gym, pool, recording studio and classrooms – offers us the opportunity to promote the safety, physical and emotional health of twice the number of youth. It's an exciting partnership with Metro Parks Tacoma and the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound.
