Robert Stanley Flinn and his wife, Irene Pierce Flinn, established the Flinn Foundation in 1965 to formalize and expand their personal philanthropies. Mrs. Flinn died in 1978 at age 78; Dr. Flinn in 1984 at age 87. Through their bequests, they provided the Foundation a permanent endowment from which the derived income supports grants to Arizona nonprofit organizations. Dr. Flinn practiced internal medicine with a special emphasis in cardiology for nearly half a century in Phoenix. He was known as one of Arizona’s leading medical practitioners. Mrs. Flinn’s personal philanthropy was active and widespread. Many Arizona hospitals, schools, civic organizations, and individuals benefited from her giving. The insight, compassion, and generosity of Irene and Robert Flinn touched the lives of many Arizonans. Through the Flinn Foundation, their legacy continues today.
