The Tom Burton Society was created in 2016 to honor the life and legacy of Tom Burton. As AGAPE’s Executive Director for 30 years, Tom Burton’s vision and leadership continue to be remembered and recognized at AGAPE and will be for years to come.

Through Tom’s leadership, AGAPE grew to become one of the most respected and well-known charitable ministries to children and families throughout Middle Tennessee. Tom’s experience and vision led AGAPE to unprecedented growth through the decade of the 1990’s and 2000’s.

During each fiscal year (July 1 through June 30), those who make gifts of $2,500 or more will be recognized as members of The Tom Burton Society.

“Tom Burton built AGAPE into something extraordinary. He has created a legacy that is going to last for a long, long time.” – Ellie Vermillion, Former Board Member

Through this program of honoring Tom Burton, we will continue to speak of the legacy of Tom’s leadership at AGAPE and that of his wife Chris who was by his side for those 30 years, working together to grow AGAPE to serve more children and families. Through The Tom Burton Society of The AGAPE Annual Fund, their legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of AGAPE’s supporters, clients, staff and Board of Directors “for a long, long time.”
