The Heritage Foundation, based in Washington, DC, is a non-profit organization that receives funding from the Stream Management Trust Fund, the sale of Conservation Heritage license plates, national and local grants, special events, individual donations and planned donations. The Foundation promotes the conservation and appreciation of forest, fisheries and wildlife resources by applying financial resources to the priorities of the Missouri Department of Conservation in collaboration with donors and other partners. The Missouri Department of Conservation staff and outside groups can request Foundation funding for projects they initiate or support on behalf of partner groups. The Heritage Foundation has recently announced the formation of the Project 2025 Advisory Board, the first major initiative of the Presidential Transition Project 2025 since its launch in April.
The Heritage Foundation is currently exploring potential collaborations with other organizations and institutions. These collaborations could include joint projects, fundraising initiatives, or other activities that would benefit both parties. The Foundation is open to working with a variety of partners, including international organizations, private sector entities, civil society organizations, and low- and middle-income countries.

The cooperative is named after Gullah Geechee, an African-American community known for its careful preservation of African cultural heritage in South Carolina and Georgia. The Foundation is also supportive of the G20 sustainable finance roadmap and encourages more efforts to promote the actions recommended in the roadmap that will expand sustainability funding.
