Planned Giving – Leaving a legacy of change
For more information about Planned Giving and the Juliette Gordon
Low Society, visit legacy.girlscouts.org.
A gift through your will can be a powerful tool. Estate gifts are
one of most important sources of individual support, ensuring
programming that promotes the development of strong leadership and
decision-making skills in girls all over the country. When preparing
or updating your will, be sure to include the Girl Scouts of
Southeastern New England.
- Your gift can enable you to make a significant contribution
that may otherwise not have been possible during your lifetime. Your
gift can support a specific area or program.
- A bequest can
be for a percentage of your estate or a specific amount.
- Your support will inspire and empower girls everywhere.
Consider a gift to the Girl Scouts as part of your estate
planning. To facilitate the planning, we have provided suggested bequest
language. Girl Scouts of the USA has created a wonderful planned giving website which will
provide many of the resources you'll need as you create an estate
plan. The site even includes a Will Planning Wizard!
The Juliette Gordon Low Society
Girl Scouts take action in their communities, working hard to make
the world a better place. When girls visit the birthplace, they
understand how their hard work is connected to Girl Scouts’ founder,
Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low. Thanks to Daisy, Girl Scouts take action
in their communities, working hard to make the world a better place.
In March 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered just a few girls to
begin the Girl Scouts. Juliette's outstanding leadership was matched
by her stewardship when she converted the carriage house of her home
into the first Girl Scout national headquarters, and she gifted the
property to Girl Scouts in her will.
Juliette's bequest was the beginning
of planned giving to Girl
Scouts. In her memory, the Juliette Gordon Low Society was established
to thank and honor friends of Girl Scouting who choose to make Girl
Scouts part of their legacies and a beneficiary of their estate plans.
Individuals who identify Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England as
one of the beneficiaries in their will become part of the Juliette
Gordon Low Society, which meets once a year.
