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 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...

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

THe Koch Brothers founded the Heritage Foundation to further their cause to buy the opinion of the United States. These brothers are Evil incarnate. Evil people blame others for problems. Evil people do not do a personal inventory as to their own evil behavior - they are immune. Evil people plan evil on other less fortunate. This fits the modus operandi of the Koch family. I suggest you people out there pray for them.

This may be an "okay" organization, but in one way they are terrible. I have been trying to stop the automatic monthly withdrawals from my mother's checking account, since she died in 2011. I sent land mail in December 2011, and again in mid-January 2012 after the January contribution was taken. I sent an email which they should have had on January 30, and finally after emailing back and forth, in the afternoon of February 3, they say they will stop future charges but that it is too close to mid-February to stop the February charge. If they had really read and processed their mail properly, these charges would already have been stopped.
