The James E. West Fellowship Award is a national recognition for those who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to their local council endowment trust fund. This contribution is in addition to, and should not diminish or replace, the donor's gift to the council's annual Friends of Scouting campaign. The award is named after the first Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America who exemplified Ralph Waldo Emerson's observation that "an institution is the lengthened shadow of one man". Recognition items include a personalized certificate, square knot, lapel pin and their name on a plaque for display in the Starr Scout Service Center.
