The Patriot Club/Package Plan
• The Patriot Club is the Republican Party of Iowa’s official “Package Plan” donor program. It allows our party to focus its time, energy and resources on what matters most; promoting our conservative values and electing Republicans.
• We believe the Patriot Club will provide the Republican Party with a tremendous opportunity to highlight our core values, respect our donors and raise money for our election efforts. With your membership in the Patriot Club and the membership of other generous donors across the state, we believe our party will be an unstoppable force in Iowa.
How it Works
• The Patriot Club is based on the 12-month calendar corresponding with 12 different themes for the Republican Party of Iowa to focus on. This presents multiple ways for Republicans to be active and involved, while highlighting the platform of our party. Members of our Patriot Club receive a-full twelve months of benefits, access to speakers and complimentary tickets to all official events.
• Each month you’ll receive full access to the theme of the month, be it dinner tickets, a custom newsletter, VIP private reception, and much more.The club is based on your membership date and is not tied to a specific one-size fits all calendar date. This means you never have to worry about joining late in the year or missing out on member benefits that may have already passed. Whether you join in January, July or November, you’ll always receive 12 full months of benefits and access from the date you donated.

How it Helps Republicans
• In order to hold events, inform voters, elect Republicans and further the principles of our platform, the Republican Party must consistently raise money. Fundraising can often involve significant overhead and upfront costs for mail, telephone calls, and event logistics. When it comes to planning for elections, it is imperative that Republicans have the structure in place to directly aid and support our hardworking candidates.
• The best way to do this is to have fundraising systems in place that allow our party to know in advance how much money it has each coming in each month to devote to upcoming projects. Joining the Patriot Club will help you budget your support for Republicans causes without the need to write checks, fill out pledge sheets or search for stamps. You’ll also help the Republican Party save money on direct mail, email and telephone fundraising requests. This allows us to devote more vital resources to promoting our message and electing Republicans to office. The Patriot Club will allow your Republican Party to:
• Cut costs, save money and craft leaner and more agile party operations.
• More effectively budget our resources and plan our strategy months in advance.
• Devote more time, money and energy to help our Republican candidates directly.
