1953 Inauguration
Friends of the Foundation

Established in 1990 for the Eisenhower Centennial, our Friends of the Eisenhower Foundation program provides support for public programs and outreach at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. Annual memberships start at $34, in honor of the 34th President of the United States, and offer free admission to all Presidential Libraries in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) system.

As a Friend, your annual tax-deductible membership will play a key role in making the mission of the Eisenhower Foundation possible. You will help the Foundation reach new generations that never knew Eisenhower, but whose lives will be enriched by the story of the man whose character and leadership were momentous in shaping significant world events.
