Juliette Gordon Low Society

Create a Legacy to Ensure the Future of Girl Scouting

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.

Providing a gift to Girl Scouts in your estate plans can include naming Girl Scouts as the beneficiary of the following:

  • Will
  • Retirement plan
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Living trust
  • Donor-advised fund
  • Life insurance policy
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Charitable lead trust
  • Remainder gift of real estate
  • Any other gift that benefits Girl Scouts in the future

As a JGL Society member, you will be invited to attend special events and recognized in our Annual Report. 

Thank You members of the JGL Society

If you have already named Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore as the beneficiary of a planned gift, let us know. We will welcome you as a Juliette Gordon Low Society member.
