Friends of President Reagan’s Chicago Home (the Corporation) is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes in accordance with section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (or a corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue law). More specifically, the Corporation is organized to develop and operate a museum and center located at
832 E. 57th Street, in partnership
with home’s current owner, reflecting the historical relevance of Reagan’s life
growing up there and elsewhere in Illinois.
The museum and center will also celebrate President Reagan’s historic
accomplishments, highlight his suffering with Alzheimer’s, complementing
mission of nearby Center for Care and Discovery, and provide educational and
community-enriching opportunities. Friends also intends to make a
contribution each year to the other Reagan homes in Illinois underscoring that
“The Ronald Reagan Trail” is one, with Chicago home enhancing the whole.
