The first planned gift in the Girl Scout Movement came from our founder, Juliette Gordon Low. After converting the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters, she gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will. Carry on her legacy and make Girl Scouts a beneficiary of your estate plans when you become a member of the Juliette Gordon Low Society.
I give, devise and bequeath to the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York, Inc. the sum of [dollar sum, description of gift, or percentage of estate] to be used for its general purposes.
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.
Because of administrative costs, a minimum of $10,000 is required to establish a first annuity.
