A healthy hive needs resources

Here’s what we know: Politically, the more we engage, the more we achieve. Research shows a clear correlation between American women’s political giving and their representation in elected office. But the research also shows that women lag drastically behind men in political giving: in 2010, women made up just 26% of the political contributions to national candidates, PACs, and party committees, according to She Should Run and the Center for Responsive Politics. We need to change that.

We must use our collective influence—our voices, actions, and dollars—to help more women achieve leadership positions. Your support for The Matriots encourages a healthy balance of power in Ohio. And when we have that, we’re on the path to healthy earnings, families, and communities.

Please join The Matriots.

$10,000 Commitment: over a maximum of four years

A Matriarch is not defined by her years, but rather by her leadership. The Matriarchs of The Matriots PAC commit at least $10,000 to encourage, endorse, and support the women of Ohio who, too, fearlessly take up the mantle of leadership, pursuing elected office.

A Matriarch is a visionary. She knows that balancing gender representation requires deep, long-lasting dedication to female candidates – now and in the future. Emboldened and convicted, the Matriarch embraces The Matriots’ most deeply-held belief that when women’s voices are equally represented politically, families and society will prosper.
