The James E. West Fellowship Award is a national recognition for individuals who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to the Illowa 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, Council President, or District Chairman, or in memory of a departed loved one, business associate or special Scouter.

Each donor is recognized with a personalized certificate, distinctive pin and an embroidered square knot which you may wear on your uniform.
