WASHINGTON—The Heritage Foundation announced the opening of the Barb Van Andel-Gaby building, the latest addition to Heritage’s headquarters on Capitol Hill.

Heritage Foundation President Dr. Kevin Roberts released the following statement about the new building:

I am thrilled to announce the opening of the new Barb Van Andel-Gaby Building. This building is a physical symbol of the work Heritage is doing every day to support and serve as a resource for the conservative movement. Now is a time to add and multiply within our movement. With this building, Heritage is doubling its commitment to supporting the institutions and organizations fighting to save America. We are grateful to our board chair, Barb Van Andel-Gaby, and all our generous supporters and excited for Heritage to continue to serve as a resource to convene, cohere, and support the conservative movement.

The new Barb Van Andel-Gaby Building is a testament to Heritage’s growth and modernization. It boasts state-of-the-art TV, radio, and podcast studios (eight in total), new conference spaces, a ballroom for large events, and additional office spaces. This marks the final phase of a 10-year-long expansion for Heritage, which included over 45,000 square feet of renovations across its 250,000 square-foot campus on Massachusetts Avenue. With office space for over 400 employees and more than two dozen rooms to host over 5,000 meetings and events per year, Heritage is now better equipped than ever to serve as a hub for the conservative movement.

Barb Van Andel-Gaby, Chairman of Heritage’s Board of Trustees, gave the following statement:

Today's expansion ensures Heritage will continue the profound impact it's had on shaping public policy for many more decades to come. Heritage's growing presence guarantees the American people have a permanent outpost in our nation's capital and a state-of-the-art building to support the growing conservative movement. It was a tremendous honor to join Dr. Roberts, the entire Heritage team, fellow trustees, friends, and family in celebrating the grand opening.

Under the leadership of Dr. Kevin Roberts, Heritage has achieved significant milestones and expanded its reach across the country. Every day, Heritage engages over 10 million members, supporters, and concerned Americans, making it the broadest fundraising base in the conservative movement. In 2023, Heritage raised a historic $150 million in support of its mission, setting a new annual record. As of April 2024, Heritage is projecting another record-breaking year and is investing those resources across its growing portfolio of activities nationwide, demonstrating its continued commitment to save and strengthen America.
