The Juliette Gordon Low Society honors individuals who demonstrate a deep commitment to Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois by making a planned gift.
After Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18 girls together to begin Girl Scouts in her Savannah home in early 1912, she converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters. She then gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will. Juliette's bequest was the beginning of planned giving to Girl Scouts. In her memory, Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois launched the Juliette Gordon Low Society on April 8, 2017 to thank and honor friends who choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacies and a beneficiary in their estate plans. Those that make a commitment between April 2017 and April 2018 will become Founding Members and receive a distinctive pin, invitation to a special event, and recognition.
If you have already named Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois as the beneficiary of a planned gift, let us know. Simply complete our planned giving form to notify our Development Office of your intentions.
