Juliette Gordon Low Society
In March 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18 girls in Savannah, GA to begin Girl Scouts. Since then, Girl Scouts has grown to be the largest organization serving girls in the United States—more than three 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 gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will.
Juliette’s bequest was the beginning of planned giving to Girl Scouts. In her memory, and on the occasion of our 100th anniversary, we established the national Juliette Gordon Low Society to thank and honor friends of Girl Scouting who, like Juliette, choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacy and a beneficiary of their estate.
A Lasting Legacy
More than 59 million American women have enjoyed the excitement and camaraderie of Girl Scouts during their lifetime.
As time goes by, the needs of girls change, and we must change to keep up with them. Helping us move boldly into the future by including a gift to Girl Scouting in their estate plans is a group of very special people—the members of the Juliette Gordon Low Society.
