Give-Ways to Give

Ways to Give

Your donation provides necessary resources, materials and support, so that we can continue to deliver this exceptional leadership experience to every Girl Scout in Nebraska.

Here are ways you can make a difference by giving to Girl Scouts!  

Family Partnership Campaign

Created with our Girl Scouts and families in mind, this is an opportunity for you to partner with the organization. With a gift of $25 or more, the Girl Scout in your family receives a participation patch!

Honorarium and Memoriam

Honorarium and memoriam gifts are reverential ways for you to honor loved ones. An honorarium acknowledges someone still living, while a memoriam is in memory of a person who is deceased.

Birthdays, anniversaries, recognition of an award, graduations or the passing of a loved one are all appropriate times to honor or remember those close to you, especially if they have a connection to Girl Scouts.

The council will send an acknowledgement to the person or family specified by the benefactor, and the benefactor will receive an acknowledgement of their donation for tax purposes.

Juliette Low Society

The purpose of Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska’s Juliette Low Society is to encourage major and planned gifts to support Girl Scouting well into the future.

  • Individuals who give at the $1,000 or greater level will be invited to a donor recognition event.
  • Members who make a major gift or planned gift at the $10,000 or greater level will receive a Juliette Low Society pin.

Planned and Legacy Gifts

Leaving a planned gift isn’t just for the elderly or extremely wealthy – anyone can leave a legacy. Through a planned gift, you can support girls today with cash or stock, or design a plan as part of your estate that benefits our girl and adult members after your lifetime.

Here are a few Planned Giving options for your consideration:

Bequest by Will 
You can make a bequest at any age by adding a codicil to an existing will or drafting a new one. This allows you to leave a legacy while maintaining the assets you need for your current lifestyle. In addition, you may generate a tax savings.

Retirement Plan Assets 
Name Spirit of Nebraska as the full or partial beneficiary of your retirement plan. The benefit amount you specify will be distributed to Spirit of Nebraska, tax free.

Life Insurance 
Life insurance provides a simple way to give a significant gift to Spirit of Nebraska with possible income tax benefits that you may enjoy during your lifetime. Name Spirit of Nebraska as a full or partial beneficiary when you create this plan.

Endowment
By definition, an endowment is a gift deposited into a fund where the original amount – called the principal – remains forever. Income earned from the fund’s investments provides the means to support Spirit of Nebraska in perpetuity.

For specific questions regarding your gift and tax advantages, please contact your financial and/or tax advisor.

For more information about leaving a legacy gift for Girl Scouts, please send us an email or call 800.487.2578. You can also find additional resources through Girl Scouts of the USA.
