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 hotel costs (up to $600). 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, Mary Phillips at or our Director of Finance, Sandy Thornton, at

Some examples of In-Kind donations are:
