IWP announces gala Co-Chairs Mary and Terry Kohler

IWP Mace 444x718Mary and Terry Kohler, original seed funders of IWP, will Co-Chair the Institute’s forthcoming Silver Anniversary Gala and Chancellor’s Dinner on October 14, where friends and supporters will gather to celebrate the ongoing mission and impact of IWP.

25 years ago, the Kohlers made a significant investment in what would have appeared to be an utterly implausible venture: a proposal to set up a new, independent graduate school. When asked by Philanthropy Magazine what was their greatest philanthropic achievement, Mary said it was their investment in IWP.

IWP founder and president John Lenczowski commented: “We have been honored to have the support of benefactors like the Kohlers, who care so deeply about our country, and who spend such a large part of their lives working for our nation’s welfare, security, and prosperity.”
