Eisenhower Foundation Receives Grants Totaling More Than $600K

ABILENE, Kan. (AP) — A foundation that honors the legacy of President Dwight D. Eisenhower has received more than $600,000 in grants to support its mission.  The Eisenhower Foundation has announced that it received a total of $625,000 from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the S.D. Bechtel Jr. Foundation.  The foundation's executive director, Mack Teasley, says the money will be used to develop new educational programs and a website, as well as digitizing historic materials at the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene. Other uses will include more staff and funding for research grants for scholars who visit the library.  The Abilene Reflector-Chronicle reports that the Gates foundation gave a two-year grant of $500,000 and the Bechtel foundation granted $125,000.
