Become a Stars & Stripes Sponsor

In his first Inaugural address in 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America.” For Ike, the "heart of America" was right here in Kansas. The Eisenhower Foundation, in partnership with the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum, and Boyhood Home, strive to provide first-class educational exhibits, programs and events for our guests visiting Ike's hometown, Abilene, Kansas.

One of only 14 Presidential Libraries nationwide, The Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum was recently named "Best Kansas Attraction" by USA Today. More than 200,000 guests from around the world visited this campus and the Abilene area last year.

There are several sponsorship options described below, and we look forward to partnering with you. The Eisenhower Foundation invites your company or organization to become a Stars & Stripes Sponsor by calling our office at 785-263-6771 or inquiring by email to
