About The Amish Heritage Foundation

We are the first––and so far, only––organization in our 300+ year history that advocates for our fellow Amish without a religious price tag.


The Amish Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and charitable contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Our federal tax identification number is 82-4591861.


We’re a secular support and advocacy nonprofit. We assist those inside and outside the Amish Church, we educate the public about the facts of Amish culture and religion, and we’re LGBTQ+ affirming.


The mission of The Amish Heritage Foundation is to help people of Amish origin transition into compassionate, active members and leaders of the global community, guided by enlightenment principles.

The first step in this process is to reclaim our Amish narrative and address our silenced issues.

Our mandate is to establish a new generation of Amish leaders who speak on issues of discrimination, marginalization, educational deprivation, collusion of church and state to keep us imprisoned, exploitation by academia and the media, and predatory manipulation by fundamentalist Christianity.
