“Those who become NESA Legacy Society Fellows really make a difference and help take NESA to the next level.”
Dustin Farris, Director of the National Eagle Scout Association

A Fellowship of Eagle Scouts​

Assisting Eagle Scouts for life …​

The National Eagle Scout Association established the NESA Legacy Society in 2013 for individuals to make a direct contribution to the national NESA endowment furthering the support of Scouting. The NESA endowment provides direct funding of Eagle Scout scholarships, NESA committee service grants, and career networking and encouragement for all Scouts who wear the Eagle Scout badge.

Fellows of the NESA Legacy Society receive a device to wear on their James E. West knot.

Fellowship in the NESA Legacy Society is open to any currently registered youth or adult Scouter who has been recognized as a James E. West Fellow. Yes, that means those who have not earned the Eagle Scout Rank may join the NESA Legacy Society.

All contributions should be in addition to the regular support of an individual’s council fundraising programs.
