Calvin Coolidge Foundation

Our Vision is to become the gateway to all things Coolidge.

The Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation was established by a group of Coolidge enthusiasts including John Coolidge, the son of President Calvin Coolidge and First Lady Grace Coolidge; Franklin S. Billings, Jr., Chief Justice of the Vermont Supreme Court; Edward Connery Lathem, Dartmouth College Librarian and Dean of the Libraries and distinguished author; Vrest ...Orton; Consuelo Northrup Bailey; Deane C. Davis and other such luminaries of the period. The Foundation was formed in part to redress the fact that there is no federally funded presidential library for Calvin Coolidge, our 30th U.S. President.

We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization charged with the responsibility for Calvin Coolidge’s legacy. We will use our unique location at Plymouth Notch, organizational strengths and passion, to establish funding, strong partnerships, and national recognition for Calvin Coolidge. We shall encourage scholarly research and education, and shall provide a collection of archives, documents and records, that verify, clarify, and interpret Calvin Coolidge’s life, character and philosophy; thus being the gateway to all things Coolidge. Our assets shall be accessible to all students of Coolidge, scholars, universities and research organizations. The nation will be inspired to use Calvin Coolidge as a key to solving relevant national and international issues.

Mission: Our Mission is to open the eyes of the world to Calvin Coolidge.

[03/06/19]   Shhh. That silence you hear is readers studying the EXCELLENT applications for the Coolidge Senators and Scholars Program. Wish we had more scholarships to give.

At Thales, a Luddy School, in Rolesville, NC with one of the winners -- LUKE. The debate topic was the national debt. Thank you to Josh Herring and his team, and our team, Jared Rhoads and Rob Hammer, for a great day.

CC is a little stressed to have so many excellent Coolidge Scholarship Candidates in the 2019 flight. Hard to choose! As Calvin types this kindly reviewers are taking a close look at your essays and cvs, dear Calvin Candidates. Thank you dear teachers for taking the time to write recommendations...and for juniors.
The goal of this scholarship is to honor academic merit and to introduce "30" and his values of saving, budgeting, civility, federalism and bipartisanship to younger people. Wish we had resources to award dozens!
Calvin hopes to increase the number of scholars so we can award more brave candidates...Meantime, we have the Senators program for our finalists....we look forward to welcome Coolidge candidates at Plymouth Notch and in Georgetown. Calvin will not be silent when it comes to helping his students.
