Support of Scouting Awards

Encouraging gifts to BSA local council endowment funds is one of Scouting's highest priorities. It is one of the only ways to ensure that your council can continue to offer the outstanding programs they now have and also grow to meet the needs of the youth and communities it serves.

In its gratitude for such support, the BSA nationally offers three distinct endowment recognition awards. These awards are presented by the local council to donors who support Scouting's financial future with council endowment gifts.

James E. West Fellowship

A gift to a local council, designated to its endowment fund. Donors may make cumulative gifts to reach Silver, Gold, and Diamond levels.

James E. West was the first Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America, and he served in that position for more than three decades. The West Fellowship award is available for gifts of $1,000 and up in cash or marketable securities to a council endowment fund. The gift must be in addition to—and not replace or diminish—the donor’s annual Friends of Scouting support. Many individuals and corporations make these gifts either on behalf of someone else—such as in honor of an Eagle Scout, Silver Beaver Recipient, a retirement, a special accomplishment, or anniversary—or in memory of a special individual. If an institution is truly “the lengthened shadow of one man,” it is more than fitting that the BSA honor James E. West’s major contributions to Scouting in such a significant way.

Second Century Society

Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has grown into something larger and more significant than anyone expected. We honor our second century by presenting The Second Century Society award to donors who make gifts of $25,000 or more to their council endowments, operating, or capital funds. These gifts can be in the form of cash, securities, land, five-year pledges, or other property suitable for a council fund or easily converted to cash.
