The Heritage Foundation effectively communicates rigorous conservative policy research to Congress and the American people.

First-rate Advocacy — Pursue conservative policies to help Americans build a better life

Free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense—promoting these principles is the mission of The Heritage Foundation, which we fight for every single day.

 

As the nation’s largest, most broadly-supported conservative research and educational institution—a think tank—The Heritage Foundation has been the bastion of the American conservative movement since our founding in 1973. More than 500,000 dues-paying members support our vision to build an America where freedom, prosperity, opportunity and civil society flourish.

 

We believe the principles and ideas of the American Founding are worth conserving and renewing. As policy entrepreneurs, we believe the most effective solutions are consistent with those ideas and principles.

 

Heritage’s staff pursues this mission by performing timely, accurate research on key policy issues and effectively marketing these findings to our primary audiences: members of Congress, key congressional staff members, policymakers in the executive branch, the nation’s news media, and the academic and policy communities.
