Club Eisenhower

While in the service, Ike and Mamie entertained their friends, known as "the gang," with food, card games, and songs so much that their quarters were dubbed Club Eisenhower. Today, the Eisenhower Foundation is rekindling this legacy with a new Club Eisenhower. Membership in Club Eisenhower is reserved for a select group of individuals who have included the Eisenhower Foundation in their estate plans. Members will be honored at an annual luncheon and will also receive special correspondence throughout the year.

Ike's Field Trip Fund

Launched in 2017, Ike's Field Trip Fund is designed to provide financial support to schools visiting the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. 

Donations will be used to provide students with a unique field trip experience, a special lunch, and to reimburse schools for transportation expenses associated with visiting Abilene, Kansas. IKEducation's programs, as well as admission to the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, are offered free of charge to visiting school groups. Since launching in fall 2013, almost 30,000 students, teachers, and adults have taken part in this unique program. As one teacher explained, “It’s a once in a lifetime experience for most of the students!”


The Eisenhower Foundation supports Ike’s belief that, “The true purpose of education is to prepare young men and women for effective citizenship.” Never in our country’s history has it been more important for the youth of America to have a role model like Dwight D. Eisenhower, who knew that the essence of leadership involved the qualities of selfless dedication, courage, conviction, fortitude, humility, and the ability to inspire. IKEducation brings the story of this great American to today’s students, the next generation, through interactive programs that utilize primary sources from the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.
