Juliette Gordon Low Society:

Creating a Legacy for G.I.R.L.s

Imagine providing a gift to all girls that promises a brighter future for generations of local Girl Scouts. A gift that shapes tomorrow's leaders and ensures programming stays relevant for each new generation of Girl Scouts. As a member of our Juliette Gordon Low Society, you can do all of this and more.

The Juliette Gordon Low Society honors friends who have included Girl Scouts in their estate plans by naming Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri in their wills or other life-income gifts. When you make a planned gift to Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri, you bestow the Girl Scouts Leadership Experience to succeeding generations of girls.

We invite you to join us in securing the future of Girl Scouting in our area by establishing a planned gift to Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri and becoming a member of the Juliette Gordon Low Society. While members have the option of remaining anonymous, membership is automatic and free to all who have established a gift or intended to create a fund through their will, estate plan or other life income agreement. Gifts of all sizes are important and welcomed by Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri. Disclosure of gift amount is not required. Members are honored in our annual report and receive invitations to other council events.

We are deeply grateful to all the individuals who have made a planned gift to Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri and are members of the Juliette Gordon Low Society.

What is a planned gift?

Planned giving is a way of supporting non-profits and charities that allows philanthropic individuals to donate more than they normally could, given their current income or financial situation. Some planned gifts offer the donor a life-long income. Others use estate and tax planning techniques to maximize the gift and minimize its impact on the donor's estate. Most result in significant tax benefits.

Planned gifts can include bequests through wills or living trusts, charitable remainder trusts, and gift annuities. You can also name our council as a full or partial beneficiary to a life insurance policy or retirement account. Our council can also help plan for gifts of real estate, personal property, and securities.
