next generation of girls will have the opportunity to benefit from
being a Girl Scout.
WHAT IS THE JULIETTE GORDON LOW SOCIETY

Legacy gifts come in all shapes and sizes, and any amount you give will make a big difference. Large or small, the most meaningful gifts come from people who deeply care about the sustaining impact Girl Scouts is making on girls...on volunteers...and the community.
