Mallory Ruhling

Fundraising Director

When she was seven years old, Mallory Ruhling did some basic math and calculated that she’d be old enough to run for president in 2028. That means she can spend the next dozen years here at ColdSpark, where she works as one of the region’s most effective fundraisers and fundraising advisors, generating nearly $3 million to date and helping to maintain Republican control in an array of elective bodies.

Her successes include people such as U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy and a host of others, including Rep. Scott Perry, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the National Republican Congressional Committee, Pennsylvania Speaker of the House Mike Turzai, State Representative Eli Evankovich, new State Sen. Guy Reschenthaler.

A graduate of Queens University in Charlotte, N.C., she holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and is also certified in their professional golf management program. The highlight of her college career was playing 18 holes of golf with her idol, Condoleezza Rice. She lives in Pittsburgh east suburbs, and is an Elder at Verona Presbyterian Church.
