The Heritage Foundation is committed to advancing the cause of an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish. Rooted in the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense, Heritage diligently works to craft innovative solutions to contemporary challenges. Unlike many Washington-based organizations, Heritage’s core mission revolves around empowering citizens and returning power to the people, rather than consolidating it in government hands. With over 500,000 members, Heritage vigorously advocates for policy solutions that benefit all Americans, drawing on the expertise of its diverse team. From education and fiscal responsibility to national security and technology accountability, Heritage’s renowned experts develop actionable ideas. Furthermore, Heritage actively engages with decisionmakers to translate these ideas into tangible change. Beyond research, Heritage communicates with citizens, promotes freedom and peace internationally, nurtures future leaders, and fosters unity among conservatives, all in the pursuit of an America where opportunity and freedom abound.
