Pillars of Scouting
To sustain healthy councils throughout the Boy Scouts of America and to deliver quality Scouting programs to youth, three fundamental pillars of Scouting must be sustained and increased: operating income, capital income, and endowment income. The growth and sustainability of all three pillars of Scouting will strengthen the platform on which Scouting is delivered to our communities throughout the Boy Scouts of America.
Major Gifts Recognition Awards
Encouraging major gifts to BSA local councils is one of Scouting’s highest priorities. It is one of the best ways to ensure that your council can continue to offer the outstanding programs it now has and also grow to meet the needs of the youth and communities it serves.
James E West
The James E. West Award is a national recognition given to individuals who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to the local council endowment trust fund. This contribution is in addition to, and does not diminish or replace, the donor's annual gift to our council's Friends of Scouting campaign. Organizations or individuals may contribute to this award in recognition of someone such as an Eagle Scout, Silver Beaver, adult leader or in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a birthday or anniversary.
The James E. West Award donor will receive a certificate, a distinctive lapel pin, and an embroidered square knot for Scouters.
