Donate to the GCLS

The Golden Crown Literary Society is a 501(c)3 organization. Your donation is tax deductible.

The GCLS has a webpage dedicated to providing information on donation options, including amounts and current and future donations to the organization (e.g., leaving a legacy through estate planning).

Cash donations from private or corporate donors can be directed by the donor to be used for the purpose of:

  • The Annual Fall Fundraiser (Nov 1 - Dec 31).
  • General Fund (to be used at the discretion of the Board of Directors);
  • Annual Conference;
  • Education (Writing Academy)
  • Events Fund (Events other than the Annual Conference);
  • Scholarship Funds (Conference or Educational Scholarships);
  • Technology Fund.

Donations can be one time, or you can set up a recurring monthly donation.

The GCLS identifies annual donation levels as follows:

  • Benefactors of the GCLS: $10,000 and up.
  • Patrons of the GCLS: $5,000 to $9,999.
  • Supporters of the GCLS: $1,000 to $4,999.
  • Affiliates of the GCLS: $250 to $999.
  • Friends of the GCLS: $1 to $249.

SCHOLARSHIPS provide opportunities to people who would benefit from attending (1) the Annual Conference and who would otherwise not be able to attend; and (2) the Writer's Academy (only partial scholarships offered, up to $500). Conference Scholarships can cover registration costs ($245), hotel costs (for 4 nights - ~$580), or both. Recipients go through an application process that includes a review panel who assess applications with names/personal information redacted, in order to keep the process as fair and unbiased as possible.

We also welcome "IN-KIND" donations of services and items, at the discretion of the Board of Directors. For further information, please contact our Executive Director, Liz Gibson at director@goldencrown.org or our Director of Finance, Sandy Thornton, at sandy.thornton@goldencrown.org.

Some examples of In-Kind donations are:

  • Projectors
  • Computers and periferals
  • Graphic Design
  • Printing Services
  • Video Production/equipment/software
