Reagan Centennial Endowment Reaches $100M

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — The Ronald Reagan centennial endowment campaign has surpassed its $100 million goal on the eve of the Gipper's birthday.

The nonprofit Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation told The Associated Press on Saturday that the milestone was reached, hours before Sunday's 100th birthday of the nation's 40th chief executive. Reagan was 93 when he died on June 5, 2004, after a 10-year battle with Alzheimer's disease.

The foundation set its $100 million endowment goal two years ago and foundation board chairman Frederick Ryan says achieving the steep milestone is a remarkable birthday present.

Ryan says it means Reagan's legacy will be preserved and promoted. The endowment also maintains and expands the foundation and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
