In March of 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia to begin Girl Scouting. Since then, the movement has grown to be the largest organization serving girls in the United States – more than 3 million strong. Juliette’s outstanding leadership was matched by her stewardship. She converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters, and she left the property to Girl Scouts in her will.
The Juliette Gordon Low Society is Girl Scouts of Gateway Council’s recognition society for special friends who are committed to the future of Girl Scouting through planned gifts. You can become a member by doing one or more of the following:
- Include us in your will. Our legal name is Girl Scouts of Gateway Council, Inc.
- Name Girl Scouts of Gateway Council as the owner or beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
- Include Girl Scouts of Gateway Council in a charitable annuity or trust, or
- Make a gift of $5,000 or more to our Endowment Fund.
The needs of girls have changed since 1912, and they will continue to change with future generations. What better way to make a difference in the lives of girls than to make a gift that will keep on giving.
