The Fund for a Conservative Majority was established and run for many years in the late 1970s and 1980s by tobacco lobbyist and Republican Missouri Assemblyman, Paul G. Dietrich in association with Jack Kemp, Ken Boehm and Peter Flaherty. It provided substantial campaign funding for the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

This organisation was a major fund-raiser for Reagn, and it spent over $2 million on Reagan's behalf during the Federal primary and general elections. [Note: [1]

The organisation was later intertwined (via Boehm and Flaherty) with the National Legal and Policy Center and by Dietrich with the National Center for Legislative Research. Dietrich and Flaherty also ran the 'Citizens for Reagan' organisation and Dietrich worked through the Koch-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
