Over the years, Acton has recognized leaders who embody the values and virtues that cultivate a society that is both free and virtuous with a number of prestigious awards that recognize their unique contributions to the cause of liberty.
Faith and Freedom Award
The Faith and Freedom Award was established as part of the Acton Institute’s tenth anniversary celebration in 2000. The award recognizes an individual who exemplifies commitment to faith and freedom through outstanding leadership in civic, business, or religious life. For this award, the Institute commissioned a sculpture of Lord Acton, the Institute’s namesake, who held firmly to the two pillars of faith and freedom.
