WIRE runs a lean organization. Your donation goes to support crucial efforts used to get the word out to prospective candidates and volunteers, and keeps the organization running smoothly. Your donation helps fund our candidate forums, educational events, candidate and volunteer outreach, database maintenance, website and email, and marketing and organizational expenses. Funds do not support candidates.

WIRE for Women is a 527 political organization. Therefore, contributions to WIRE for Women are not tax deductible. 527 political organizations are required to publicly disclose their contributors on financial reports filed with the Internal Revenue Service.

We use PayPal for donations, which is fast, secure, and allows credit card transactions, even without a PayPal account. If you wish to donate by check, you can contact us at, and reference "Donation" in your subject line.

THANK YOU for supporting women and our communities.
