Juliette Gordon Low Society

After Juliette Gordon Low gathered just a few girls to begin the Girl Scouts in early 1912, she converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters and then gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will. Juliette’s bequest was the beginning of planned giving to Girl Scouts.

Bequests can be in the form of cash, securities, real estate, or other property. Including a bequest in your estate plan is one way to leave a legacy – but naming the Girl Scouts as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, bank account, or retirement account are other simple options. You may designate a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, a percentage of your estate, or leave the remainder of your estate after you have provided for loved ones. While unrestricted gifts allow the Girl Scouts to allocate funds to areas of greatest need, your bequest can be designated to support a particular purpose, program, or activity.

Members of the Juliette Gordon Low Society have a passion for Girl Scouts and care deeply about the future of the organization. Your planned gift will ensure the enriching experiences you enjoyed as a Girl Scout are available to future generations of girls. Juliette Gordon Low Society members enjoy the following benefits:

  • Membership in national Juliette Gordon Low Society
  • Invitations to special events
  • Region-specific society gatherings
  • Subscription to our newsletter
  • Listing as a Society member in Girl Scout publications
  • Special membership lapel pin

Planned giving is a meaningful way to leave your legacy with the Girl Scouts. To learn more, please feel free to review the JGL Brochure and the JGL Interest Form or contact the Fund Development Team at development@gsnwgl.org or 888.747.6945.
