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 (JGLS) was established to thank and honor friends of Girl Scouting who choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacies. These individuals seek to ensure that the future needs of girls are met by including Girl Scouts in their estate plans. This planning might include a will, charitable gift annuity, a trust arrangement, a real estate gift, or a life insurance policy.
