ABILENE, KS. – I LIKE IKE Kansas license plates are hitting the road, providing an opportunity to support the Dwight D. Eisenhower Foundation and its programming while also honoring the 34th president of the United States and Abilene, Kansas native.
The I LIKE IKE distinctive tag is an official license plate generating income for the non-profit Eisenhower Foundation from the license fees collected by the state, according to Meredith Sleichter, the Foundation’s executive officer. The money generated from the I LIKE IKE tags supports the Foundation’s educational programs that preserve and promote the legacy of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
“The cost of getting the I LIKE IKE license plate is a $50 annual donation that comes to the Eisenhower Foundation and is tax deductible,” Sleichter says. “Of course, your regular county tag fees also must be paid.”
An I LIKE IKE distinctive license plate can be obtained at any Kansas county treasurer/motor vehicle office when renewing a license plate or at any time by paying the distinctive plate fees and exchanging an existing plate for the I LIKE IKE plate, according to Dickinson County Treasurer Leah Hern. All distinctive license plates in Kansas also require a one-time $45 fee when first purchased.
