Major Gifts & Trust Account
Your gift is invested in a Mobile Area Council Trust Fund and only the interest may be used for programming. The principal may never be used, so your gift is one that lasts forever. Life Insurance policies, Wills and Bequests are the most familiar and widely used way to benefit Scouting at some
future time. It is how many donors choose to establish a legacy after their lifetime.
The James E. West Fellowship Award is a national recognition for individuals who contribute $1,000 or more in cash or securities to their local Council Trust Fund. This contribution is in addition to and does not replace the donor’s annual gift to the Council’s Friends of Scouting and Family Membership Enrollment Campaigns.
The 1910 Society membership is available to donors who make gifts of $25,000 or more in cash, securities, land, long-term pledges, or other property suitable to the council’s trust fund.
The Founders Circle recognizes deferred gifts designated to council trust funds of a minimum value of $100,000. These gifts come from charitable bequests, charitable trusts, annuities, life insurance, or other gifts as approved by the council.
