Planned Giving

Juliette Low Legacy Society

Juliette Gordon Low was the first to leave a planned gift to the Girl Scouts – she gifted her home to serve as the first headquarters. From the very beginning she embodied a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™

In her honor, our Council began the Juliette Low Legacy Society 20 years ago, to celebrate our Girl Scout Family who leaves a legacy to Girl Scouts through a planned gift, which can be an easy process.

Today, our Council’s 31 founding members has grown to over 180! We would be honored to add your name to our prestigious list of planned giving donors.

By joining the Juliette Low Legacy Society, you are ensuring future generations of Girl Scouts in this region. Your gift can help countless Girl Scouts realize their dreams and develop to their full potential in their chosen fields.

How do I join?

There are many ways to join JLLS. Here are a few easy options!

·Make Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital a partial beneficiary of your retirement account or your thrift savings plan
