The Heritage Foundation’s Financial Information
Heritage is "the most important conservative organization in the country and the most influential think tank in the world." –Neal B. Freeman, American Spectator, Nov. 12, 2012

At The Heritage Foundation, we want you to know that your generous donation has been wisely spent to advance conservative principles. That's why we make our financial information available to you and our hundreds of thousands of members nationwide.

During fiscal year 2013, The Heritage Foundation spent more than $77 million dollars advancing conservative principles.

"The Heritage Foundation didn’t invent conservative principles, but since 1973 the Washington- based think tank can take credit for providing the salt to the life of the modern conservative political movement.... Rest assured that under DeMint’s leadership Heritage and Conservative Principles will continue to advance and America and Freedom will be the better for it" –Former Congressman Bob Beauprez, Townhall.com, Jan. 21, 2013

We pledge to always honor our members' conservative principles. To ensure our members can remain confident in our commitment to conservative ideas, our Board of Trustees has amended our charter to ensure Heritage remains true to its conservative purpose.
