HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?       $0, ZILCH, NOTHING . . . IT’S FREE!

The Eisenhower Foundation actively seeks funding to help cover expenses associated with K-12 IKEducation Learning Experiences. As long as funds are available, IKEducation will come to your school free of charge, whether we arrive in-person or virtually. And, when restrictions are lifted on traditional school field trips, we will provide as much funding as possible to pay for schools' expenses in coming to the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. 

For questions about funding, please contact us at 785-263-6771 or by email.
