Encouraging gifts to BSA local council endowment funds 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.
In its gratitude for such support, the BSA nationally offers three distinct recognition awards. These awards are
presented by the local council to donors who support Scouting’s financial future with gifts to their local council
endowment funds. Those national recognitions are:
- The James E. West Fellowship
- The 1920 Society
- The Founders Circle
