Shirley Freeman

Shirley Freeman made a huge impact to Key West and the Florida Keys as a school administrator (20 years), elected Monroe County Commissioner (5 years), Mayor of Monroe County (3 years) and through volunteer service and financial support to countless non-profit organizations.


Shirley was part of the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys before it even began as one of the founders who made its existence possible in 1996. She served on the Community Foundation’s Board of Governors from 2000-2007 and was board chair from 2004 through 2005. She and her husband Harvey are Legacy Society members and hosted countless parties and events on behalf of the Community Foundation. She was an active ambassador and advisor for the Foundation every day until her passing at age 89 on April 6, 2024.


To continue Shirley’s legacy of giving to make the Keys a better place to live now and in the future, please make a donation in her memory to the Shirley Freeman and Harvey Server Environmental Fund.
