James E. West Endowment
The James E. West Fellowship Award is a national recognition for individuals who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or marketable securities to the Council's Endowment Trust Fund. This gift must be in addition to and not replace or diminish the donor's annual Friends of Scouting support. Many individuals and organizations make these gifts on behalf of someone else such as in honor of an Eagle Scout, Silver Beaver recipient, Scoutmaster, Cubmaster, a retirement, a special accomplishment, or anniversary or in memory of a special individual. The James E. West Fellowship Award is recognized with a personalized certificate. In addition, a distinctive lapel pin and an exclusive knot for the uniform are presented at a special recognition program. The recipient will also be included in special Grand Canyon Council events and mailings in the future.
