Rebuild, Restore, and Renew the Legacy of President James Monroe.
Our vision is to spread an appreciation of James Monroe and to honor the principles of just government and righteousness exemplified in his life and in his work. In particular, the Foundation dedicates itself to strengthening the adherence of all Americans to the views expressed by him in the ‘Monroe Doctrine’ and other documents.
"What raised us to the present happy state?...The Government has been in the hands of the people. To the people, therefore...is the credit due...
It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising the sovereignty."
- President James Monroe, Inaugural Address, March 4, 1817
