Longs Peak Council
Boy Scouts of America
James E. West Fellowship Award
The James E. West Fellowship Award is a national recognition for individuals who
contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to their local council endowment trust
fund. This contribution is in addition to, and does not diminish or replace, the donor's
annual gift to the council's Friends of Scouting Campaign.
Organizations or individuals may contribute an award in honor of someone -- an Eagle
Scout, a Silver Beaver recipient, unit leader, or district chairman, or in memory of a
departed loved one, business associate, or special Scouter.
Those who are recognized by the James E. West Fellowship Award will cast their own
"lengthened shadow" as they help ensure the Scouting legacy for future generations of
young people and create the financial stability of the program in the twenty-first century
for their local council.
James E. West served as the first Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America for over 30 years.
