IKEducation is finding new and exciting ways to serve students during the fall semester of the 2021-22 academic year. So far, IKE Online, our virtual K-12 education program, has reached 11 states and 3 countries. Additionally, IKE Express is taking programs into classrooms throughout the state of Kansas. This global growth would not be possible without the support from donors across the country.
In November 2021, we announced a special $25,000 matching gift opportunity to help fund IKEducation during this current academic year. True to form, our supporters responded and the $25,000 match was secured. Gifts were received from 40 states and Washington, D.C. — a testament to how much Americans still like Ike.
As we look toward a new year with new beginnings, we are confident that the transformation the Eisenhower Foundation has experienced in the last decade is only the start. Over the next months, we will be sharing plans for our organization that will secure the legacy of Dwight D. Eisenhower well into the future.
Together, we are building a movement — an Eisenhower movement — for the 21st century.
