Established in 1945, the mission of the Eisenhower Foundation is to honor and champion the relevance today of the life and leadership of Dwight D. Eisenhower through compelling programs and events that celebrate his legacy. We accomplish this mission by providing funding to the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum, and Boyhood Home.

This important work would not be possible without you, our generous donors. We thank you for your generosity and for your help in passing on Ike's story –– as both Supreme Allied Commander in Europe during World War II and as 34th President of the United States –– to future generations.

There are several ways to support the Eisenhower Foundation and the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, both located in Ike's hometown of Abilene, Kansas, including:
