James E. West

James E. West Fellowship

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 significant contributions to Scouting in such a significant way.  The James E. West Fellowship Award is an attractive 8 x 10 inch certificate, personalized with the honorees name, date of the gift and presented in a bound leather presentation folder.  In addition, there will be a distinctive lapel pin and an embroidered square knot worn on the uniform of registered Scouts and Scouters.

1910 society

1910 Society

Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has grown to into something larger and more significant than anyone anticipated. We honor that special date by presenting the 1910 Society award to donors who make gifts of $25,000 or more to their council endowments. These gifts can be in the form of cash, securities, land, five-year pledges, or other property suitable for a council endowment fund or easily converted to cash. There are four levels of recognition in the 1910 Society that honor four very special individuals who shaped modern-day Scouting. The 1910 Society Award is a limited-edition reproduction of the original "Boy Scout Handbook" with the donor's name embossed in gold on the cover. The member will also receive and a special device that may be worn on a West Fellowship uniform knot and parchment certificate.

Founders Circle

Founders Circle

The Founders Circle is intended to recognize deferred gifts designated for council endowment funds.  With deferred giving (also called planned giving) so widely and effectively used by so many donors, the BSA wants to recognize the importance of such major gifts.  Donors are recognized for gift commitments with a minimum value of $100,000.  Unlike the other endowment recognition awards, a donor may qualify for membership with gifts made through charitable bequests in a will or codicil; charitable trusts, such as unitrusts, annuity trusts, and lead trusts; BSA Gift Annuities or BSA Pooled Income Fund gifts; Life insurance/retirement plan designations; other deferred gifts approved by the local council.  As with the 1910 Society, there are four levels of membership within the Founders Circle.  Members receive a special certificate, a limited-edition reproduction of the original "Boy Scout Handbook" with the donor's name embossed in gold on the cover, and a special device that may be worn on a West Fellowship uniform knot.
