Become a GCLS Sponsor or Donor

The GCLS has a broad range of sponsorship and donation opportunities available to both corporate and private individuals.  To view the marketing and visibility benefits associated with a sponsorship, please see the section below entitled "Sponsorship Benefits".

Sponsorships 

Sponsorships range in size from $250 to $15,000, and support the various events that the GCLS hosts or participates in, the largest of which is the Annual Conference (We expect over 300 attendees in 2015 at our conference).  Sponsorships are considered by the IRS to offer the sponsor marketing and visibility benefits in return, and therefore may have reduced value for tax deductions - check with your tax accountant.  

PLEASE NOTE:  If there is a customized sponsorship package that you would like to explore, please contact our Executive Director, Liz Gibson, at  director@goldencrown.orgor our Director of Finance, Sandy Thornton, at sandy.thornton@goldencrown.org.
