Twenty-two Indiana teachers expanded their understanding of constitutional history and current events July 8-12 at the We the People Summer Institute in Bloomington. Middle school teachers comprised 50 percent (11) of the participants, and seven of the participants were new to the curriculum. 

Scholars were Dr. David Adler, president of Alturas Institute and lecturer at the University of Idaho College of Law, and Dr. Robert Dion, associate professor of political science at the University of Evansville, and chair of the Department of Law, Politics and Society. Learn more about the Summer Institute here.

Annual Report: A Great 2017 for Students, Hoosiers Thanks to You!
Thanks to you, the 2017 annual report from the Foundation shows great progress on many projects. From civic education to civil legal aid, our volunteers and donors can be proud. The Foundation made $1.5 million in grants to legal aid nonprofits and led efforts to re-define how legal aid is delivered in Indiana. High School Mock Trial and  We the People: the Citizen and the Constitution expanded even further last year, and Mock Trial will have a $1.6 million impact in one community. Your donations and volunteer time were the catalysts for the progress. Thank you!

Deferred or Real Estate Donations Help Even More
When you think of deferred giving, do you think about the value a stock or real estate donation might bring to the mission you care about? Have you considered how donating an asset could help further your goals for the legal profession? Donating material items could help you establish an endowment at the Foundation that furthers your goals and helps the colleagues who have meant so much to you. Who have helped you make not just a living but make the world better by promoting civic values, civility in the profession, and charitable acts for those who cannot afford a private attorney.
