Eisenhower Foundation

Abilene, Kansas



The Eisenhower Foundation was formed in 1945 after the Allied victory in Europe to create a memorial to General Eisenhower. 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. This amendment will allow the Eisenhower Foundation to continue presenting and generating media coverage related to the release of the 50th Anniversary Kerner Report. The focus of the Kerner Report deals with the need for reducing poverty, inequality and racial injustice that is not being adequately addressed.
