At the Heritage Foundation, annual giving by our members closes the gap between our operating expenses and funds raised from membership, sponsorships, endowment income and other sources. These funds support every aspect of the Foundation, including salaries, educational programs, preservation initiatives and general maintenance and supplies. The Annual Fund is the lifeblood of our organization and makes an immediate impact on the scope of our work. We are extremely grateful for the support we receive!

Matching gifts
Have you recently made a gift, purchased a membership, or volunteered with us? Many companies match their employees’ gifts and volunteer time. Check with your employer to see if they will double your impact!
