Last year, longtime supporters of Girl Scouts, Dianne Belk and Lawrence Calder, initiated a challenge to councils nationwide to increase planned gifts. GSSNE not only met the challenge—we exceeded our goal in terms of the number of new planned gifts we received, helping to ensure our programs will be available to many future generations of girls!

But our work is not done. A gift through your will can be a powerful tool. Planned Giving is one of the simplest and most important sources of individual support, ensuring programming that promotes the development of strong leadership and decision making skills in girls across our council.

When preparing or updating your will, please include GSSNE.

Gifts can be any amount, small or large, or even a percentage of your estate. A planned gift can enable you to make a significant contribution that may otherwise not have been possible during your lifetime. And your gift can support a specific area or program, giving you the satisfaction that your support will inspire and empower girls everywhere.

In addition, you will be joining a distinguished list of Girl Scout supporters that are now members of the Girl Scouts Planned Giving Society—The Juliette Gordon Low Society.

For more information regarding Planned Giving, please contact Jill Martens at jmartens@gssne.org or call 401-331-4500.
