Endowments & Tributes


Heritage Society
Indian Water's Council Heritage Society recognizes those who want to preserve the tradition and values of Scouting for generations to come. The Heritage Society is a program for those who desire to include Scouting in their estate planning or make gifts to the council's endowment fund. Gifts may be for general use or restricted for special purposes or programs. 

Indian Waters Council hosts a Heritage Society Dinner annually in the fall to recognize the friends and supporters of the endowment fund. All Heritage Society members are invited. 
 
James E. West Fellowship
The James E. West Fellowship is a national recognition for individuals who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to our council's endowment fund. This contribution should be in addition to your annual Friend’s of Scouting gift, as annual operations is always the priority. Organization or individuals may also contribute in honor of someone. The award is presented to the honoree with a certificate, a lapel pin and a uniform square knot. 
 
Scout Memorial and Tribute Fund
The Scout Memorial and Tribute Fund allows donors to honor someone on a birthday, special occasion, anniversary or in memory of someone. These gifts remain in perpetuity to ensure that Scouting is available for the youth of our future generations. Donations to the Scout Tribute Fund become part of the endowment fund and are tax deductible.
