Local council endowments are important because they blend the visions of their donors with the needs and objectives of Scouting. One of the exciting things about an endowment gift is the bond, the relationship that is created between the donor and the Council. Minimum support levels for various types of endowments are necessary to guarantee that income is adequate to achieve the donor’s intent – now and in the future.
Various Awards can also be achieved when you donate to the endowment fund – The James E. West Award and the Second Century Society Award.
The James E. West Award is given to those who donate $1,000 or more. The level awarded is dependent on the amount donated.
The Second Century Society Award is given to those who donate $25,000 or more over 5 years.
