I applaud the work of this organization in helping to fight the encroachment of government in our daily lives. Our founding fathers saw the danger of an overreaching government and fought the Revolutionary war to free ourselves from that. The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were written to protect "we the people" from the government.

The free enterprise system will always be far more efficient in creating wealth and prosperity for all. Socialism only means that everybody gets to be equally poor. Ask the French who are about to go bankrupt because as Margaret Thatcher said:

"The problem with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

This is the "Big Daddy" of conservative movement think tanks. Hundreds of employees, reliably mainstream conservative on every issue. Its focus is on clear, concise research on critical issues for lawmakers and the public. If the Heritage Foundation did not exist, we would need to invent it. I visit its website often and so should everyone who wants to know the facts behind the big issues. Strongly recommend.

The Heritage foundation refuses to acknowledge that we have asked them on at least 5 different occaisions to stop sending mail to my fathers address. he has given the way too much money over the last 2 years. HE CANT AFFORD IT!! but he is 85 years old and has no clue what he is doing. I guess the Heritage Foundation is afraid of losing this cash cow. Do the right thing and stop sending mail telling the eldeerly that they Need to give an Emergency Donation, this puts fear into them. This is just the same as any other scam out there, If you really do what you say then do what we ask and take elderly people off your mailing list before they cant afford to eat.

The Heritage Foundation was NOT founded by the Koch brothers. A quick google search, which takes 10 seconds, clearly shows this to be misinformation. The Heritage Foundation was founded in 1973 by Paul Weyrich, Edwin Feulner and Joseph Coors. This Think Tank has been pivotal in educating people about the conservative values this country was founded on. Very professionally run charity with good accountability and transparency.

The Heritage Foundation is nothing more than propaganda machine founded by the Koch brothers to enrich themselves. It cherry picks phrases from the Constittution then ad libs them misleading it's audience with the intent of druming up support for politicians who will forever be in the pocket of the Koch brothers...

Jamatucci1 this organization is attempting to RETURN this country to its roots and the ideals of our founding fathers. The "re-engineering" that is taking place is from pro-socialist, anti-capitalist, "entitlement" motivated, selfish individuals who ASK NOT "what they can do for their country" but rather "what their country can do for them". That quote is for the new self centered democrats who have forgotten what their party and leaders USED to be about. As far as the "intellectual" who gave us all a lesson on "evil" people and how they blame others - I'm curious if that applies to those who "blame Bush" for everything that's gone wrong in this country under the current leadership. Both of you should consider moving to a country where your ideals are already established - perhaps Russia, Greece, France or China. The governments there will "take care of you". Don't forget, when you give up the right to care for yourself (to a government), your giving up your liberty.

Heritage Foundation is a wonderful organization. We have been donors for years. Their primary role is to educate people that we have a Constitutional Republic and should be governed accordingly. Also the need to stop the wasteful government spending of tax dollars...

This organization is clearly focused on re-engineering America down a path that destroys the American Dream for nearly everyone.

I enjoy the daily Member Briefing online. This is a highly professional and educational organization. They are conservative and aligned with "the rule of law".

The Heritage Foundation is an excellent, professionally-run organization. Pay no mind to the reviewer who says the foundation was started by the the Koch brothers (as though there would be something wrong with that anyway -- they made their money honestly, through the free market, not by ripping off the taxpayer). They've confused Heritage with another free market institute. The motive of the diatribe is obvious: They want to harm an organization that has been effective in slowing the growth of government. Greatnonprofits is worse than useless because they permit anybody to anonymously post whatever they want about an organization and won't even remove remove reviews once evidence is provided to them that they include false and defamatory information. Greatnonprofits thus hold lower standards that Wikipedia, if you can believe that.
