GCLS 2017 Fall Fundraiser

Nov. 1 - Dec. 31, 2017

Fall has arrived and it is time for the GCLS Annual Fall Fundraiser!

We truly value the support of our members, and in the past, you have made it possible for your GCLS to become what it is today:

  • Community in the world of lesbian literature
  •  Diverse and inclusive
  •  Growing through promoting lesbian literature
  • Strong author/reader network
  • Helping authors become better writers

 

THIS FALL FUNDRAISER:

  • Supplements our low-cost membership dues to cover GCLS annual operating expenses
  •  Supports Technology, Events, Education and Marketing
  • Keeps our membership dues low and affordable for as many people as possible – an important aspect of our GCLS culture and history.

 

COUNT ME IN TO KEEP LESBIAN LITERATURE ALIVE

Last year, our fundraiser raised $12,000, thanks to all of you, and the five women in our community who donated a total of $6,000 and challenged the membership to match their $6,000. We did it, together!

This year, we are being challenged to match $7,000.  If 600 of our members were to donate just $12 each we would meet their challenge!  We know that not all of you are able to help, but perhaps those of us who can, could donate a little extra to help cover those who can’t.

Your $12 – (the price of 3 Starbucks drinks or 1 large pizza) can meet this challenge!

As our membership continues to grow, our costs for supporting and managing the GCLS increase, along with the cost-of-living increases for events and general administration.  Donating to support your organization means that we can continue to be your Community In The World of Lesbian Literature.

Again, thank you for your support of your GCLS.  

 

Respectfully yours,

The GCLS Board of Directors
