The Heritage Foundation has some of the most dedicated people in the conservative movement working to advance its goals. One of those people is Barb Van Andel-Gaby, who has served on Heritage’s Board of Trustees for over 20 years. She was unanimously selected by her peers this summer to serve as chairman, and is the first female to hold this vital role.
Outgoing chairman Thomas Saunders expressed that “Van Andel-Gaby is a proven conservative leader and Heritage is in good hands.” President Kay Coles James agreed by stating, “Van Andel-Gaby is prepared to lead America’s best-in-class conservative institution.
The Van Andel family has deep roots in the conservative movement. Jay Van Andel, the chairman’s late father, was among Heritage’s greatest supporters, and was devoted to Heritage’s success from its early days until his passing in 2004. The Van Andel Center at Heritage is named after him in honor of his profound commitment.
Van Andel-Gaby continues her family’s legacy of service to conservative values. Her new position as chairman of the board exemplifies her longstanding dedication to our common cause. Together with the invaluable support of members like you, Heritage is better positioned to make conservative change a reality.
