From The Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP):

Women lag men as donors and face campaign finance challenges as candidates in races for statewide elective executive office, according to a new report from the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP), a unit of the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University. In Money Matters in the Fifty States, CAWP researchers Kira Sanbonmatsu and Claire Gothreau examine campaign fundraising from 2001 to 2020 in statewide executive office races (other than races for governor and lieutenant governor) from both a donor and a recipient perspective, finding significant discrepancies between men and women, as well as specific disadvantages for women of color. Money Matters is the second report in the CAWP Women, Money, and Politics series, undertaken in collaboration with OpenSecrets, and follows the debut report in the series, The Money Hurdle in the Race for Governor.
