What a gift this would be to a council that has given me so much. I am 15 years old and an Eagle scout, my family and I have been big on Scouting and promoting what it gives not only to the Scout and parents, but the community. Membership is down in my district, but we are trying to make it better bye giving back to the community as much as possible. In a few month I am planning a conservation project, beyond what I did for Eagle, to give back just a little more, love of charity for our Community will make a difference, Thanks!

I'm donating 15 Computers to my Local Council. Computers will setup in a classroom and to be used at Summer Camp for a variety of Merit Badges. Net worth of the computers is $15,000. Do this qualify donor to receive the James E. West Diamond Award?

@150BSA. First of all, thank you for your wonderful donation! Second, I do not believe so. The James E. West Fellowship (not award) is for $1000 plus to a council ENDOWMENT fund, which is a council permanent fund that keeps its initial investments and skims off the interest annually to keep the programs running without a loss of capital.  The two higher levels are for $25,000 donation or $100,000 WILLED to the council after a scouter's death.  There is no 'diamond' level.  The other two are called the Founder's Circle and the 1910 Society.

Is it $1000 or more annually or one time gift that qualifies?
Mar 31, 2014 - Scouter Paul
@Andy - It is a one time gift.

Can the youth scouter earn this if a parent donate the required amount into the endowment fund?
Nov 23, 2014 - Scouter Paul
@Dennis - Yes.  There is no stipulation that the award recipient need be an adult.

@ scouter paul, can the scout and parent wear it with one donation of let's say $1000?  Or would it require two donation?
