WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP…
Campaigns are expensive to run and operate, even when you’ve got a great group of volunteers.
Donating helps our campaign pay for everything from mailers and walk literature for canvassing, to targeted digital advertising to reach our voters.
The official Calcara for Kansas campaign treasurer is Brett Hoedl. If you have questions about campaign fundraising or donations, please contact Brett at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Spoiler: our campaign has raised more than any other Democratic challenger for the Kansas House of Representatives, per the latest round of financial reporting. 100% of that funding came from individuals like you.
In fact, our fundraising was so good it made local headlines in the SM Post:
Cindy Holscher leads fundraising efforts for 2018 House election cycle in Shawnee Mission area; newcomer Matt Calcara outraises incumbent Randy Powell
That’s right. We outraised the incumbent.
And not by a little, either. By quite a bit.
From the SM Post article…
Among the more notable results from the 2017 fundraising reports was the performance of Matt Calcara, a Democrat who is running for the District 30 seat held by Republican Randy Powell. Calcara has raised more than $14,000 since declaring his candidacy in May. That’s more than double the $6,100 in contributions Powell garnered for 2017. Calcara has more than $13,000 cash on hand compared to just under $8,000 for Powell.
Keep in mind, all of Powell’s donations–literally 100% of them in 2017–came from PACs and business interests. See for yourself (PDF).
His two biggest donations (both for the maximum amount of $500 per cycle) were the Koch-controlled KS Chamber of Commerce PAC and something called Centre Management Company. There is literally not even an address available for that entity on the form Rep. Powell filed. They were his biggest donors aside from the Kochs–one of only two entities that maxed out to him–and he didn’t even list an address for them.
Who maxed out to Calcara for Kansas? People like you.
