A healthy hive needs resources
Participation = Representation
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.
This level is defined by the maximum annual gift allowed by Ohio law. Your leadership will signal to potential and present PAC contributors a long-term commitment to female candidates dedicated to policy and legislation ensuring economic stability for Ohio women and their families. By providing an example for others to follow, you will pave the way to achieving our long-term goal of 50% female political representation in Ohio public offices.
$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.
This group of 500 women and men were our early visionaries. When they first invested in The Matriots, it was just a vision. An idea. They will forever be etched on our history, identified with our belief in a shared values system instead of a party platform. Identified with our shared belief that when women lead, Ohio prospers. This giving level sunset on Dec. 31, 2019.k
