The Juliette Gordon Low Society
Girl Scouts take action in their communities, working hard to make the world a better place. When girls visit the birthplace, they understand how their hard work is connected to Girl Scouts’ founder, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low. Daisy was the first G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™, thanks to her, Girl Scouts take action in their communities, working hard to make the world a better place. You can be a G.I.R.L., too! Contact us today.
In March 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered just a few girls to begin the Girl Scouts. Juliette's outstanding leadership was matched by her stewardship when she converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters, and she gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will.
Juliette's bequest was the beginning of planned giving to Girl Scouts. In her memory, the Juliette Gordon Low Society was established to thank and honor friends of Girl Scouting who choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacies and a beneficiary of their estate plans.
