James E. West Fellowship - Recognition for Endowment Contributions
James E. West served this movement as it's first Chief Scout Executive. His name is included in the circle of founders who shaped our organization along with Baden Powell, Ernest Thompson Seton and Daniel Carter Beard. West was always looking to the future, and preparing young men to be productive citizens. It's fitting that an award which bears his name would be given to others who are also forward thinkers.
The James E. West Fellowship Honor is presented to those who have made a gift of $1,000 or more to the council's endowment fund. Only the interest generated from the gift can be used to further Scouting's mission. This is a perpetual gift that will generate Scouting dollars forever. There is something quite noble about making an investment today in future generations of Scouts that we'll never meet.
