But before you go, I’d like to tell you something important…
As a conservative, you’ve probably felt pressure to change what you believe is right about the role of government.
You’ve been told conservatives “don’t care” about the poor. You’ve been lectured that “more government” is the “right side of history.” You’ve felt shamed by “experts” on the media, politicians in Washington, and even entertainers and sports stars.
But you know they’re wrong. You know that America is truly exceptional, because of the freedoms our Constitution allows us to enjoy—God-given freedom to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, secured by our founders’ wisdom and our ancestor’s sacrifice.
You realize that “aggressive progressives” are dragging us down the wrong path. They want a socialist utopia that actually makes the poor poorer, gives children of all income levels worse education, and makes individuals beholden to the policies of government elites in Washington D.C. along with their cheerleaders in New York and Hollywood.
You also know that too many Americans have been deluded into thinking big government is the hero that will save them and provide them with good lives. You believe—as our founders did—that as government grows in size, our freedom shrinks.
This is why brave people like you need to stand together and fight against dangerous ideas like socialism and big government policies. And we need to fight back before it’s too late.
And one key way you can fight back is to arm yourself with facts—just like the ones you’ll learn about in your course The “Not-So-Great” Society.
We launched The Heritage Foundation online courses for citizens like you. Never again will you feel unprepared or ashamed. You’ll feel assured, settled, and armed with easy-to-remember principles and facts.
But we need to reach many more Americans. We need to continue to develop more video courses to share far and wide. Many tell us that they need these resources to help arm themselves when these arguments land at their doorstep.
For that reason, would you consider making a special gift to The Heritage Foundation today? Your tax-deductible gift today will activate your Heritage Membership—which will add you to the more than 500,000 members.
What’s more, your gift will help us aggressively market our resources to those who can be saved from the progressive movement by helping them understand and value our founding principles.
And your gift will let Heritage Foundation experts continue to influence decision-makers with facts and analysis that change policy. Our experts are in the halls of power: Congress, the White House, state governments, and more.
Your most generous gift today will support our work to build an America where freedom, prosperity, opportunity, and civil society flourish.
Simply complete the form below to empower us to find people—especially young people—in America who are looking for answers, and present them with resources like this online course and other teaching resources and research.
This is the way to win the battle against the rise of big government and socialism.

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!
