Over $7,000 Raised for Ike's Field Trip Fund!
Thanks to you, our generous donors, we have raised over $7,000 for Ike's Field Trip Fund! Launched yesterday, on #GivingTuesday, our goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of 2018 for this special fund that brings schools to the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.
As one teacher from Effingham, Kansas, wrote on their application, "We come from over two hours to the Eisenhower for what has proven to be such a valuable experience for my students. Each year, our district's budget continues to shrink and each year I'm afraid that this will be the year that I can't bring my students to Abilene. Any help that I can get that offsets any potential costs to the district will go a long way towards maintaining this long tradition for my program of getting students to really evaluate history through the lens of careful examination of primary source documents and learning about the leadership model that General Eisenhower exhibited."
Please help us reach our year-end goal of $10,000 by making a contribution on our website
, by calling 785-263-6771, or by mail to: Eisenhower Foundation | P.O. Box 295 | Abilene, KS 67410. Your gift will be used to share Ike's legacy with future generations.
