Dear Fellow Kansan,

As is so often the case when Kansans are presented with a challenge, they respond wholeheartedly. The Eisenhower Foundation is pleased to share the exciting news that the Holm Family Five Star Challenge goal has been met, and even exceeded! Over the past four months, you have contributed more than $400,000 to the Eisenhower Foundation, which means the Holm family will give an additional $100,000, bringing the total to $500,000. We are honored to partner with you in this fundraising effort to ensure The Heart of America exhibit in the newly renovated Eisenhower Presidential Museum will be provided by the generosity of Kansans.

It is gratifying to know that Kansans still like Ike. How fitting that, as we observed the 73rd anniversary of D-Day on June 6th, we also celebrated this successful fundraising effort. The Holm family shares your pride in our great state and in the accomplishments of a humble Kansas boy who grew up to become one of the greatest leaders in American history.

On behalf of the Eisenhower Foundation and the Eisenhower Presidential Museum, thank you for answering this challenge in support of the Dwight D. Eisenhower: A Legacy of Leadership campaign. In addition, thank you to Tim and Brenda Holm for their leadership in preserving the legacy of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
