James E. West

The Great Rivers Council is fortunate have many donors with the foresight to create the Council Endowment Fund, with the goal to provide ongoing support for the Council beyond annual giving. This endowment is donor restricted and only the income from this investment is made available to support the Council.

A gift to the Great Rivers Council, designated for the council endowment fund, qualifies the donor for membership as a James E. West fellow.

This gift must be in addition to— and not replace or diminish—the donor’s annual Friends of Scouting support. A minimum gift of $1,000 in cash or marketable securities qualifies for the Bronze level membership. Donors may make cumulative gifts to reach Silver, Gold, and Diamond member levels.

James E. West Fellowship gifts are made at the following levels:

  • $1,000-$4,999 Bronze Level
  • $5,000-$9,999 Silver Level
  • $10,000-$14,999 Gold Level
  • $15,000+ Diamond Level

Many individuals and corporations make these gifts either on behalf of someone else—such as in honor of an Eagle Scout, Silver Beaver recipient, a retirement, a special accomplishment, or anniversary—or in memory of a special individual.

Interested donors should fill out the James E. West Fellowship Application and submit it to the council.
