The Heritage Foundation, which rejected six-figure donations from Facebook and Google in 2020, promised no longer to accept financial support from Big Tech companies as long as they continue to suppress conservative viewpoints. President Kay C. James announced Tuesday she was signing a pledge with other conservative leaders that calls out Big Tech’s censorship and refuses contributions from these companies.

“The Heritage Foundation will not in good conscience accept money from companies that repeatedly and blatantly attempt to silence conservative speech they don’t agree with,” James said. “Every time a new case of censorship comes to light, these companies trot out excuses and promises to do better. Enough is enough. I stand united with other conservative leaders against Big Tech’s censorship of conservative voices.”
