The Heritage Foundation

Join the most influential conservative group in America

For the past 46 years, The Heritage Foundation has led the conservative movement…and now you can be part of this exclusive group.

Become Part of a Movement That Can Transform America Free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense—these are the values that we fight for every single day. As the nation’s largest, most broadly-supported think tank, The Heritage Foundation has long been the bastion of the American conservative movement. And with more than 500,000 members, our ranks are growing stronger every day. And now, you can join us and help to ensure that your values are being advanced in Washington, in the Media, and across this great nation. Conservative leadership listens to Heritage

In 1980, just as Reagan was beginning his first term in office, The Heritage Foundation developed the “Mandate for Leadership,” a detailed policy manual on everything from taxes and regulation to trade and national defense. Reagan used this Mandate to help realize his vision of an America the world could admire once again.

When President Trump took office two years ago, The Heritage Foundation presented him with another Mandate for Leadership, focused on undoing the damage of the progressive agenda Obama forced upon the American people. And just as Reagan did, Trump adopted the Mandate as his blueprint for making limited government and conservative values a reality in our generation. Already, his administration has implemented almost two-thirds of the Mandate and moved the country closer to the conservative vision than it has been in decades.

There is a lot of work left to do—and Heritage is in the best position to do it. We have been named the most influential public policy think tank in the world by the University of Pennsylvania. With your help, we can wield that influence to reclaim America for generations to come.

Enough is enough—it is time to reverse our course.

The Heritage Foundation has the policy solutions that can make America that “shining city upon a hill” once again. And we are strategically positioned to do just that:

  • President Donald Trump stands with Heritage, saying “For nearly half a century, Heritage has been titans in the fight to defend, promote, and preserve our great American Heritage.
  • Heritage employs some of the smartest minds in Washington. With over 100 policy experts, Heritage truly has the talent to be able to solve complex policy issues, with simple and effective conservative solutions. As Rush Limbaugh has said, “Some of the finest conservative scholars alive today, live, work, and breathe at The Heritage Foundation.”
  • Heritage has a media distribution network second to none. Millions of Americans visit our Daily Signal website each year, bypassing the mainstream media filter to get the facts. Heritage experts appear on television and radio dozens of times each week, publish hundreds of sound policy research reports annually, and host hundreds of meetings a year with grassroots leaders and local and national officials.
  • Heritage is located right in the belly of the beast. Location is everything. Heritage is the largest single land owner on Capitol Hill, with offices just 1000 steps from the House and 500 steps from the Senate. This strategic location gives us access to lawmakers and public officials that need to be equipped with policy solutions that represent your conservative principles.

Thank you for your gift to the Heritage Foundation!

You know that sound conservative policy is the best answer to our nation’s problems.

But the liberal left and the Washington Establishment have been blinded by fake news and a stubborn resolve to keep the status quo. This is unacceptable! They have to feel the heat—and that’s where Heritage Action for America comes in. Heritage Action’s lobbyists and grassroots activists put political pressure on legislators and lawmakers to get The Heritage Foundation’s policies across the finish line. Each and every day, Heritage Action is pressuring lawmakers to step it up and fix health care, stop amnesty, and pass welfare reform—or they’ll feel the heat at the polls. But we can’t do this without you.

Hold Washington’s feet to the fire with your gift to Heritage Action today!
