Meet Our Donors
Jeremy and Katie Bencken
After major life events that most of us experience–like the birth of a child or the death of a parent–we started to consider our own lives. How do we want to be remembered, what legacy could we leave, and how can we ensure in some small way that America remains a country of opportunity for our children?
Even before I started law school at the University of Southern California in 1994, I was a supporter of and contributor to the Institute for Justice. Freedom and liberty were always important values in our house growing up, and they were values that I carried with me into adulthood. When I made the decision to go to law school, I already knew about IJ’s summer Law Student Conference from reading Liberty & Law, and I was an enthusiastic applicant to the program in 1995.
Dr. John T. Wenders
Liberty lost a friend when Dr. John T. Wenders passed away last November. This fall, IJ was honored to receive a very generous gift from Dr. Wenders, who preferred to go by Jack. Jack shared our commitment to advancing individual liberty, and he made IJ a beneficiary of his individual retirement account, giving us vital resources to keep fighting for the fundamental freedoms he valued.
