Juliette Gordon Low Society
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has made girls a priority and has provided them with more ways to learn and lead than any other organization. Throughout the Southeastern Michigan Council, the Girl Scouts have served millions of girls.
Legacy (or planned) gifts allow you to make a gift through your estate or financial plans. A planned gift can amplify your ability to support girls for generations to come.
Donors who make a legacy gift to the Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan are honored as members of the Juliette Low Society reflecting the forward thinking vision and personal commitment of our fearless founder.
By joining the Juliette Low Society, you will help to ensure a future filled with promise and opportunity for the girls yet to come.
There are many ways to make a legacy gift:

Annuity Donors over the age of 65 can establish a Charitable Gift Annuity with the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York and receive income for life. Donors of any age can establish Charitable Gift Annuities to benefit a parent or other beneficiary over the age of 65; the donor gets the tax deduction and the parent gets a lifetime guaranteed payment.
