Frequently Asked Questions
Why The Initiative?
We are inspired by the words of President Dwight David Eisenhower, “Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built the Republic.”
Will the initiative work?
We hope that citizens will step up and help decorate Public Schools with Eisenhower’s important message—our National Motto. Recently in Texas (Texas had the same law as Ohio), Patriot Mobile a big cell phone company stepped up and bought images of the National Motto for all public schools. We love the fact that our initiative is a Citizen lead action of the people. And that the people will help put God back into the Public Schools. Please help.
Will the schools place the framed images in their schools?
The school system is required by law to place the framed image in its school if it is donated. We will do our best to acquire a picture of the framed item on the wall of the school and email it to you
What Happens If Someone Has Already Purchased a Frame for the School District I'm Looking For?
That means that someone has already bought an InGodWeTrust.com Picture frame for that District (The District name will start with a *). You can email us the name of the exact school location you want to donate to and we’ll contact the school and ask them if they will accept your donation for that specific school in that district. Email: info@EmpowerUAmerica.org
What happens if the school won’t hang the frame?
This is unknown territory but we will do our best to hold school systems accountable if they are not following the law.
Can we buy framed images for all the individual schools in the school system?
By law the school system is only required to hang one In God We Trust picture frame in a school system in an Auditorium, Cafeteria or Class Room. If your school’s District name starts with a * that means that means someone has already ordered a frame for that school district. You can email us with the name of the specific school location you want to donate to and we’ll contact the district and try to see if they will accept the donation. Email: info@EmpowerUAmerica.org.
Is it fair to force religion on Ohio students?
Biographers insist that Eisenhower never intended to force his beliefs on anyone. President Eisenhower simply reaffirming the “transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s most powerful resource in peace and war.”
What comes with the picture frame that the school receives?
The following are the items included in the box that the school receives:
1) The school will receive a history of the National Motto that can be posted alongside of the framed image.
2) The school will receive notice of who donated the framed item (you), and the message that you sent to the school when you checked out.
3) The school will received the framed picture–that is ready to hang–the picture will arrived shrinkwrapped and protected.
4) The school will receive notice that if they need more pictures frames that we can put other schools in the district online for people to donate to.
Is it true a similar project is taking place in Texas?
Yes, in Texas one cell phone company Patriot Mobile bought “In God We Trust Images” for all the schools. The beauty of this initiative is that this is provided directly from the citizens–us–not one large company. Please help us!

On the back of the frame is a wire hanger which makes the frame ready to hang out of the box.
