We’ve put together a reference list of organizations that provide support, training, endorsements, and funds to Women Republican Candidates.
We are the nation’s premier conservative training organization, helping put in place a truly unique, separate political infrastructure—for use before, during and after election dates. As a 501c(3) non-partisan, nonprofit, American Majority continually trains, organizes, mobilizes, and equips new grassroots conservative leaders. We believe meaningful, lasting political change starts not in Washington, but at state and local levels, where most actual government decisions and spending occurs.

Log Cabin Republicans
Log Cabin Republicans is the nation’s original and largest organization representing LGBT conservatives and straight allies who support fairness, freedom, and equality for all Americans. Log Cabin Republicans has state and local chapters nationwide, full-time staff in Washington, DC, a federal political action committee, and state political action committees.
Log Cabin Republicans are LGBT Republicans and straight allies who support equality under the law for all, free markets, individual liberty, limited government, and a strong national defense.
What We Believe
We are loyal Republicans. We believe in limited government, strong national defense, free markets, low taxes, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. Log Cabin Republicans represents an important part of the American family—taxpaying, hard working people who proudly believe in this nation’s greatness. We also believe all Americans have the right to liberty and equality. We believe equality for LGBT Americans is in the finest tradition of the Republican Party. We educate our Party about why inclusion wins. Opposing LGBT equality is inconsistent with the GOP’s core principles of smaller government and personal freedom.
Why We Exist
Log Cabin Republicans work to make the Republican Party more inclusive, particularly on LGBT issues. Equality will be impossible to achieve without Republican votes. Working from inside the Party—educating other Republicans about LGBT issues—is the most effective way to gain new Republican allies for equality. Log Cabin also exists as a voice for GOP values among members of the LGBT community.
We are first and foremost a grassroots organization. Thousands of members in dozens of chapters across the country work inside the GOP to change hearts and minds. One person at a time, we are building a stronger Republican Party and a better America.
Aside from our growing membership base spread around the nation, Log Cabin Republicans boasts an experienced political staff in our nation’s capital. The office serves as an important link to Republican Party leaders. We are gaining new allies for equality everyday in Washington and around the nation.
To achieve a more inclusive GOP, it is important for LGBT Americans to participate in the Republican Party, educating those who fail to understand the need for civil equality and equal protection under the law. Log Cabin Republicans is shattering stereotypes and educating the GOP’s rank-and-file about the importance of fairness and equality for all Americans, including LGBT Americans. We are on the path to progress.
Aside from working for change within the GOP, Log Cabin Republicans continues building new alliances in the LGBT community. Both parties have an important role to play in advancing our civil rights. To attain substantial legislative progress, we need votes from both sides of the aisle—Republican and Democrat. Over the last three decades, many LGBT activists and straight allies worked hard to make the Democratic Party more inclusive on LGBT issues. Log Cabin Republicans are doing the same important work to transform the GOP. Without more allies in the Republican Party, equality will be impossible to achieve. With your help (and that of your friends) we can achieve our goals in the near future.
LOG CABIN PAC
The LCR PAC is a critical part of Log Cabin’s mission to build an inclusive GOP by helping to elect fair-minded Republicans to the U.S. House and Senate.

Maverick PAC has a fifteen year track record of driving young professionals to the political process through fundraising and events. Maverick PAC is the premier national donor network of future conservative leaders in business, government & politics.
For most young professionals, a Maverick PAC contribution is their first political donation, giving them access to elected officials, national thought leaders and high profile CEO’s through low dollar events. Maverick PAC then recruits event attendees into its network, building out an organization of the best and brightest of the next generation.
National Federation of Republican Women
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is one of the largest grassroots political organizations in the country with tens of thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation.
We empower women from all backgrounds in the political process and provide a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government, and civic arenas.
Our objectives are to:
- Inform the public through political and legislative education, training and activity;
- recruit, train and elect Republican candidates;
- protect the integrity of our electoral process;
- promote the principles, objectives and policies of the Republican Party;
- unite and facilitate cooperation among the state and club organizations; and,
- increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
Working to elect Republican candidates at the local, state and national levels is the focal point of the National Federation of Republican Women.
Through our Campaign Management Schools and other programs, we have trained thousands of Republican women to manage political campaigns and to be successful candidates and elected officials. At the grassroots, our members sponsor voter registration drives, host candidate debates, and log millions of volunteer campaign hours for Republicans every election cycle.
Republican Main Street PAC
The American people are rightfully tired of the hyper-partisanship and gridlock in Washington. Voters want a government that works and legislators who can work across party lines to find pragmatic solutions to the challenges we face as a nation.
To make Washington work again, we need more — not fewer — elected officials who are willing to put partisan politics aside to work for the greater good. That’s where the Republican Main Street PAC comes in: We support Republican candidates who are committed to governing and to making Washington work again.
What We Do
The Republican Main Street Partnership PAC is a multi-candidate federal political action committee. We offer our individual and corporate/association members the opportunity to support the governing wing of the Republican Party.
Who We Endorse
Our endorsement list is made up of the sitting members and prospective candidates on whose success the Republican majority rests. These are the most challenging battlegrounds in Congressional elections.
RightNOW Women PAC
RightNOW Women PAC is focused on increasing the number of elected Republican women to federal office through direct PAC contributions as well as grassroots support. RightNOW Women PAC will focus on engaging younger women to support female candidates through low dollar, high volume fundraising events and grassroots engagement.

Helping Republican Women Candidates become Political Leaders for positive change

We support women candidates from all walks of life who share common beliefs in economic growth, individual responsibility, a strong national defense, access to the best education and quality healthcare at a reasonable cost.
An America where all qualified Republican women have the funding and support necessary to get elected to federal office.
Susan B. Anthony Candidate Fund
The Candidate Fund finances and endorses pro-life candidates for congress and high state public office
Since our founding in 1992, SBA List has financed and endorsed over 110 winning members of Congress. We will have helped to nurture a first generation of women leaders who have embraced the cause of Life and advanced in public office.
We support candidates in three key ways:
- Direct Support: The SBA List Candidate Fund contributes directly to selected campaigns
- Bundled Checks: The SBA List asks members to contribute to the endorsed candidates of their choice, making the checks payable to the campaigns. The checks are then collected by the SBA List Candidate Fund, “bundled” together with other members’ checks and sent to the candidates
- Independent Expenditures: The SBA List Candidate Fund runs Independent Expenditure Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) programs in targeted districts, designed to turn out pro-life voters on Election Day.
Value In Electing Women Political Action Committee (VIEW PAC) was founded in 1997 by female Republican Members of Congress and professional women to help elect qualified, viable Republican women to Congress. VIEW PAC is governed by a voluntary Advisory Board responsible for strategic decisions relating to engagement in key federal races. Incumbent GOP women in the House and Senate attend VIEW PAC events, but they have no official operational role.
VIEW PAC is exclusively dedicated to protecting and increasing the number of Republican women in the US House and US Senate. Our singular goal is to strategically provide financial support where and when it is needed most; whether it be for a vulnerable incumbent or a competitive candidate. Since we began our mission over 20 years ago, VIEW PAC has directly contributed and helped raise over $4,500,000 for Republican women running for Congress.
VIEW PAC strives to support credible, electable Republican women running for federal office and encourages others to do the same. What began as a way to raise money and contribute money now also serves as a network of people who care about helping other women succeed. More women are taking the leap to run for federal office, in part because they believe they will have the support they need to be successful.
While VIEW PAC has done more to support Republican women running for federal office than any other PAC entity in history, we need to do much more to accomplish our collective mission. Beginning in 2018, VIEW PAC will be utilizing its independent expenditure component to strategically deploy voter contact efforts on the ground and on the airwaves to support vulnerable incumbents and competitive challengers when and where they need it the most.
