About the Eisenhower Foundation
The Eisenhower Foundation non-profit was formed in 1945 after the Allied victory in Europe to create a memorial to General Eisenhower. The Boyhood Home was opened in 1947 and the Museum in 1954 by the Foundation. Public and private entities raised $3.5 million to build the Library which opened in 1962. Today, five buildings on 22 acres, comprise the Eisenhower Center and includes the Presidential Library, Presidential Museum, family home, Visitors Center and Place of Meditation.
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.
Donations to the Eisenhower Foundation provide funding to support the exhibits, educational programs, and community events at the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home in Abilene, Kansas.
