A Message from Michael Reagan

Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way.  -  Ronald Reagan

Dear Friends,

As I reflect on the life and accomplishments of my father Ronald Reagan, I embrace with gratitude his bold dreams, basic beliefs, and unwavering faith in the greatness of America and Americans.  Ronald Reagan was an incredible father.  And while I cherish his legacy as any child of such a father would, what I am most proud of is his steadfast dedication to individual liberty and global democracy and the positive impact these values had upon our nation and our world.

When Ronald Reagan won the presidential election in 1980, there were 56 democracies in the world.  When he left office in 1989 there were 76.  By 1994, there were 114.  This explosion in freedom and democracy was a dream of Ronald Reagan’s and a historic achievement of his presidency.

I created the Reagan Legacy Foundation to memorialize my father’s accomplishments, and to educate and inspire people worldwide to value freedom and liberty.

Please take a moment to review the projects we have underway and then let me know how you can help.  Your generous donation will ensure that future generations will benefit from the legacy of Ronald Reagan. 

With gratitude,
