WASHINGTON—The Heritage Foundation announced Thursday it raised more money in 2023 than any prior year, surpassing $150 million in cash and commitments. The conservative policy organization began the banner year celebrating its 50th anniversary and continued advancing its strategy to save the country.

“America is being tested like never before and Heritage is answering the call under Dr. Kevin Roberts’ leadership,” said Andy Olivastro, chief advancement officer. “Both small-dollar donors and major funders are investing more because our team is accomplishing real results on our policy priorities and through game-changing new initiatives like Project 2025 and the Oversight Project.”

More than 500,000 patriotic Americans donate to Heritage, knowing that they are supporting cutting-edge scholarship on the issues that matter most to the everyday American. The Foundation invests and deploys every cent of donor support towards strategic and mission-driven efforts.

“We are profoundly grateful to every Heritage member for funding our critical work at a time when the future of our country is at stake,” said Dr. Kevin Roberts, President. “This record-breaking support in 2023 is a vote of confidence that we have the right people and the right strategy as we lead the fight from America’s outpost in Washington, D.C.”

“Because donors are entrusting us with greater resources, we have been able to recruit even more world-class experts, fellows, and staff to contribute research on crucial policy issues and expand our reach across the country, all while being scrupulous and successfully lowering expenses,” Olivastro added. “We have a long way to go to match the resources of the Left, but we are moving in the right direction.
