Donate* to the WRTC
The WRTC mission is to help elect Republican candidates for town office. In order to do that we need funds to help candidates run for office. We make donations to individual political campaigns and we also spend money directly to run advertisements in the local newspapers to support all of our candidates. While our primary mission is to elect candidates for town offices, we also try to support candidates for state offices, especially candidates from Wilbraham. Donations to campaigns from our town committee can be important to a candidate because while individuals are limited to individual candidates is limited to $500.00 by state law, contributions from the town committee can be as high as $1,000.00 and there is no limit to donations in kind. For example we can spend any amount to do mailings, buy lawn signs, etc.
Of course our ability to get candidates elected is limited by our resources. We have a small committee and a limited budget. Any donations to our committee are very welcome to help us get our candidates elected. While individuals can make donations as high as $5,000.00 to our town committees, any donation no matter how big or small will be appreciated. We have set up a donation web page so you can use your credit card to make donations or you can mail a check made out to:
