General Fund » Donate OnlineThe General Fund is a great place to contribute to our organization. The General Fund is used to pay for day-to-day expenses incurred by the organization such as teleconferencing fees, accounting software fees, travel related expenses (not including attendance at the Annual Conference), copying, and office supplies.
Writing Academy Scholarship Fund » Donate OnlineThe GCLS Writing Academy is a year long program for new or relatively new writers who have at least half of a novel written and who want to learn the critical components of quality writing, plus various related topics such as researching your novel, the writer's life, and the path to getting published. We try to offer partial scholarships to some students each year to ensure all have an opportunity to learn.
Annual Conference » Donate OnlineThe GCLS tries very hard to keep conference costs as low as possible for our members. This becomes increasingly difficult each year. With help from our donors, we are able to meet the challenges of increasing conference costs without passing those costs on to our members.
Technology Fund » Donate OnlineGCLS uses technology in many ways – membership, events, awards and conference management, survey and forms creation, accounting/bookkeeping, and more. We also need to purchase hardware to reduce audio-visual costs for our conferences over the long term.

Sandra Moran Scholarship Fund » Donate OnlineSandra Moran was a proud member of the GCLS Writing Academy faculty. Her time and dedication to the program and the students was extraordinary. The Sandra Moran Scholarship Fund will be used to award one full scholarship per year to our Writing Academy.
Membership Scholarship Fund » Donate OnlineSometimes our members fall on hard times and are unable to renew their memberships. This fund is to build up monies to help both renewing and new members with a 1-year membership.
Conference Scholarship Fund » Donate OnlineThe GCLS offers opportunities for scholarships to attend the conference, for those who would otherwise not be able to attend due to financial limitations. GCLS Conference Scholarships cover partial to full HOTEL costs for the recipients. Transportation and conference registration fees are covered by the attendee.
