Heritage Society
Established to recognize those who believe in preserving the tradition and values of Scouting, as well as perpetuating its future for generations to come. The Heritage Society is a program to recognize those who include Scouting in their estate planning or make outright gifts to the Endowment Fund of Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council. Pledges of $25,000 and above to any of our funds (operations, capital or endowment) also qualify for Heritage Society levels.

Gifts of $1,000 or more are honored with a James E. West Fellowship. Gifts of $25,000 or more, payable over 5 years are honored with Second Century Society, and those who include Scouting in their estate plans through deferred gifts of $100,000 earn membership in our Second Century Society.
