In March 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18 girls in Savannah,
Georgia and began the Movement we know today as Girl Scouts. Since
then, Girl Scouts has grown to be the largest organization serving
girls in the United States—more than 2.7 million strong.
Juliette’s outstanding leadership was matched by her stewardship.

national headquarters, and she gifted the property to Girl Scouts in
her will. Juliette’s bequest was the beginning of planned giving to

honor friends of Girl Scouting who, like Juliette, choose to make Girl
Scouts part of their legacy and a beneficiary of their estate.
“Planned giving donors ensure the long term stability of our
