Juliette Low Legacy Society

Celebrating 20 Years

 It took one visionary woman to create the Girl  Scouts—it takes thousands of believers to carry it forward.

The Juliette Low Legacy    Society was established in memory of our founder  Juliette Gordon Low to  thank and honor friends  of Girl Scouts who choose  to make Girl Scouts part of their legacy and a beneficiary of their estate plan. The Society celebrates those who have made a contribution of $10,000 or more to the endowment through their estate plans or as an outright gift.

Everyone has the opportunity to include Girl Scouts in their estate plans, and make a big impact. It can begin by simply writing a will, but it can also include changing beneficiaries of life insurance policies and retirement accounts, or providing lifetime income for yourself and others through a charitable trust. Click here for ways to include our Council in your estate plans.

Help us guarantee a legacy of Girls Scouts, and join the Society today! Simply fill out the membership form. Make a planned gift and become part of the Council’s Juliette Low Legacy Society today!
