The Juliette Gordon Low Society

In 1912, Founder Juliette Gordon Low converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters, and then gifted the property in her will.

Juliette’s bequest was the beginning of planned giving to Girl Scouts. In her memory, we honor and recognize friends of Girl Scouting who, like Juliette, choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacy.

Make Your Ultimate Wishes Come True

Our Juliette Gordon Low Society of planned giving donors celebrates their generosity and vision for future generations of girls! Gifts of every size are an investment in their future. Make your ultimate wishes come true through the best option for you:

  • Bequest by Will - Bequest any age by adding a codicil to an existing will or drafting a new one. You’ll leave a legacy while maintaining the assets you need for your current lifestyle, and you may generate a tax savings.
  • Retirement Plan Assets - Name GSCCS as the full or partial beneficiary of your retirement plan. The benefit amount you specify will be distributed to GSCCS, tax free.
  • Life Insurance - Life insurance provides a simple way to give a significant gift to GSCCS with possible income tax benefits that you may enjoy during your lifetime. Name GSCCS as a full or partial beneficiary.
  • Endowment - An endowment is a gift deposited into a fund where the original amount – called the principal – remains forever. Income earned from the fund’s investments provides the means to support GSCCS in perpetuity.

Please consult a professional Tax Advisor

Your gift could inspire another bequest!

Dianne Belk, Chair of the National Juliette Gordon Low Society, has a challenge for you! If three new members join before September 30, 2018, Dianne and her husband, Lawrence Calder, will make a planned gift of $10,000 to our local council!
