Shirley Agnos Legacy Foundation

The Shirley Agnos Legacy Foundation

In recognition for her years of dedication and service, the board of directors established the Shirley Agnos Legacy Foundation in 2007 in honor of Shirley Agnos, the President Emerita of Arizona Town Hall.  This permanent special fund supports endowed funding for education and research activities, the President's position, and capital expenses for the organization.

As part of the Legacy Foundation, the “Shirley Agnos Arizona Town Hall Legacy Award” was established to highlight individuals who have a record of superlative civic engagement.  This award is given annually to individuals based on the following criteria:

  • Long and dedicated record of working to improve our state and the lives of our citizens
  • Proven record of creating consensus positions from differing points of view
  • An active advocate on behalf of statewide issues
  • Highly respected and of the highest integrity
