In 2017, Girl Scouts of the USA announced a Planned Gift Challenge
that could result in over $2 million in support for our Movement –
and which contains $14,000 for Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines
– unprecedented in our history!
The vision of the Dianne Belk & Lawrence Calder Challenge
and the Erik & Eva Andersen Challenge is to spark our
Movement to increase efforts to grow existing planned giving programs
and implement planned giving programs where none currently exist. When
donors make planned gifts, they can often make a greater impact on the
next generation of G.I.R.L.s in ways meaningful to their experience
The Challenges contain criteria designed to enable councils to grow their
Juliette Gordon Low (JGL) Society membership and planned giving awareness.
When donors make planned gifts, they can often make a greater impact
on the next generation of G.I.R.L.s in ways meaningful to their
experience and involvement. These gift commitments provide
sustainability and support far into the future – ensuring that Girl
Scouting will remain for years to come.
In addition to ensuring the legacy of Girl Scouting lives on for
generations to come, JGL Society members are recognized with an annual
introductory pinning ceremony and are invited to attend a yearly
recognition banquet/luncheon. Members are also listed in our Donor
Roll and receive special invitations to premier events throughout the year.
Joining JGL Society of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal
Pines is as easy as notifying us of your planned gift intentions.
