Bequests and Planned Giving

Make Girl Scouts San Diego a Part of Your Legacy

Your life has been impacted by Girl Scouts. You may have built your career on skills that started as a Brownie, know a youngster who loves the adventures this organization brings to her life, or are simply passionate about empowering girls and women. Your commitment to Girl Scouts runs deep.

Continue that legacy with a gift in your will or estate plan that will ensure Girl Scouts San Diego continues to be strong for generations to come. Your legacy gift can be a gamechanger for thousands of girls in our community.

Join the Juliette Gordon Low Society, and put the next generation on the path to success. Members of this special Society are this council’s most committed supporters and receive special recognition and benefits for supporting the future of our mission.

Planned gifts like bequests, living trusts, and other life income gifts allow anyone at any income level to make donations as part of their financial or estate planning. You can include Girl Scouts San Diego as a beneficiary of your IRA, life insurance or other plan. You can even invest in a charitable gift annuity that will provide you with income every year for the remainder of your life. 

Planned gifts may also provide:

  • Tax advantages
  • Reduced estate taxes and capital gains
  • Increased cash flow
