Planned Giving

In March 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia, and began the Movement we know as Girl Scouts. Juliette’s outstanding leadership was matched by her stewardship. She converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scouts national headquarters, and she gifted the property to the Girl Scouts in her will. Her 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.

When you make a planned gift to Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, you bestow the gift of Girl Scouting to future generations of girls. Your thoughtful and generous gift will support and sustain Girl Scouting and will extend your involvement with the Movement beyond your lifetime.  Your legacy will shine through the smiles, the laughter and the achievements of Girl Scouts for years to come. 

Providing a gift to Girl Scouts in your estate plans can include naming Girl Scouts as beneficiary of a:

  • Will
  • Retirement Plan
  • Living Trust
  • Donor Advised Fund
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Remainder Gift of Real Estate
  • Any other gifts that benefits Girl Scouts in the future

Please allow us to show our deepest appreciation for your generous gift, by informing us of your decision to include Girl Scouts of West Central Florida in your estate or financial plans.
