Invest in Girls. Change the World.

Why support girls in Girl Scouting? Because at Girl Scouts, we know that when given the opportunity, girls change the world, and we have the reach and experience to help girls everywhere lead.

Your investment will help us bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to more girls, enabling them to discover what’s important to them, connect with their community, and take action to make the world a better place. We believe every girl has an important role to play. When girls succeed, so does society. We are committed to making Girl Scouting available to every girl that wants to take part. By removing the financial barriers and providing financial assistance to support participating in programs and activities, we ensure that we are able to bring Girl Scouting to even more girls.

Thank you for considering an investment in Girl Scout’s commitment to ensuring every girl reaches her fullest potential.

Give the Gift of Girl Scouting

One-Time Contribution

We all want the best for our girls. We know Girl Scouts works—the research is clear. Girl Scout Alumnae are more likely to graduate from college, earn more money, vote, and be active volunteers.

But we can’t provide quality experiences for girls and volunteers without support from people like you.

One-Time Gift 

Fill out the form below to give a one-time gift to support a Girl Scout in our council.  You can also donate by sending a check, along with a note outlining the purpose of the gift to:

Planned Giving & the Juliette Gordon Low Society

For the Future of Girls and the Girls of the Future

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.

The Juliette Gordon Low Society was established 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 Michigan Shore to Shore, 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 of Michigan Shore to Shore 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 benefitting Girl Scouts in the future

Gifts of all sizes are important and welcomed by Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida. Disclosure of gift amount is not required; however we would like to know about your decision to include us in your estate planning so that we can show our appreciation for your generous gift.

To design a gift that benefits the people and organizations you care about most, we recommend that you obtain the professional counsel of an attorney who specializes in estate planning. We can work with your advisors to help you plan for tomorrow and receive maximum benefits today.
