Ronald Reagan had a special partnership with Young America’s Foundation. Originally, YAF sponsored his radio addresses at Rancho del Cielo in the 1979s.Thanks to the generosity of patriotic Americans, YAF saved the crown jewel of the Conservative Movement, the Reagan Ranch, for future generations to know and love Ronald Reagan.



William F. Buckley, Jr. 


“The reason one supports Young America’s Foundation is that one supports one’s country.”


The Washington Times


“It would please Mr. Reagan that his spiritual home has been restored and maintained… by a private organization, Young America’s Foundation, and by voluntary contributions”


Vice President Dick Cheney


“Young America’s Foundation has been recognized as the premier organization dedicated to the enrichment of young Americans who are committed to the ideals of freedom and opportunity for all people.”

  • Victory for free speech

    YAF Beat Berkeley! YAF continues to protect students’ rights to free speech. Young America’s Foundation scored a victory for free speech everywhere through our lawsuit against the University of California, Berkeley. No longer can Berkeley discriminate against conservatives and impose unconstitutional policies on conservative speakers.

    Kennesaw State University rescinded its discriminatory policies as a result of Young Americans for Freedom filing a lawsuit. Thanks to the courageous YAF activists who refused to back down, school administrators at KSU no longer possess unbridled discretion to impose greater fees on speakers with whom they disagree or subjectively deem “controversial.”
  • YAF's Conferences & Lectures

    Thousands of students across America’s campuses attended YAF’s 2019 conferences and lectures. Tens of millions more watched the Foundation’s conferences and breakthrough lectures online.

    The speakers at our premiere conference, the 41st annual National Conservative Student Conference, ranged from White House officials to New York Times bestselling authors to leading professors and United States senators. The annual program also aired on C-SPAN, reaching 100 million homes nationwide.
  • <strong><h4>Saving the Reagan Ranch</strong></h4>

    Saving the Reagan Ranch

    Young America’s Foundation celebrated the 20th anniversary of saving the Reagan Ranch.

    The Los Angeles Times hailed the Foundation as “one of the most preeminent, influential” forces in the Conservative Movement. The LA Times highlighted Young America’s Foundation’s work to protect and preserve President Reagan’s beloved Rancho del Cielo as a lasting monument. “Rancho del Cielo has allowed the Foundation’s reach to transcend generations,” the article noted.
  • “I have worked closely with Young America’s
    through the years and have found
    that their commitment to promoting balance,
    academic integrity, and free market values
    on campuses is unsurpassed.”

    -Speaker Newt Gingrich

  • “The reason one supports Young America’s
    Foundation is that one supports one’s country,
    and one’s country is going to be run, in a matter
    of days now, by these kids. They are going to
    be making the important decisions.”

    -William F. Buckley Jr.

  • “In the generational battles over ideas, Young
    America’s Foundation has been an indefatigable
    warrior, promoting the eternal values of individual
    freedom and free enterprise which have been
    at the core of the American experience.” 

    -Secretary Jack Kemp
