About the Eisenhower Foundation
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. His vision of peace, prosperity and justice in the world offers this generation a timely and relevant example for character leadership.
The Eisenhower Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1945, following the Allied victory in Europe, to honor World War II veterans and General Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The Foundation provides private support for the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum, and Boyhood Home located on a 22-acre campus in Ike's hometown of Abilene, Kansas. While the federal government, through the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), supports the overall administration of the facility, the Eisenhower Foundation provides funding to support the exhibits, programs, and events.
