Hawkeye Area Council Serves nearly 5,600 Youth Annually

The Hawkeye Area Council proudly serves 5,600 youth annually throughout seven counties in Eastern Iowa.

Friends of Scouting is the annual campaign that raises funds to support our mission, "to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law."


All Donated Money Stays Local

All money donated to the Friends of Scouting annual campaign directly supports Scouting operations in Benton, Cedar, Iowa, Johnson, Jones, Linn and Washington counties.

Major Gifts

Giving to the Hawkeye Area Council Endowment Fund is one of the best ways to ensure that the Council can continue to offer outstanding programs for future generations of Scouts and families.

An endowment gift says, "Scouting is important to me and my family. It’s more than an organization; it’s a way of life. It’s what we say and do in the spirit of the Scout Oath and Law."

To recognize such gifts, three national awards can be presented by the Council. 

  • James E. West Fellowship Award
  • 1910 Heritage Society
  • Founders Circle

James E West Fellowship

The James E. West Fellowship Award is a national recognition for individuals who contribute $1,000 or more to the Hawkeye Area Council Endowment Trust Fund. This contribution is in addition to the donor's annual gift to the Council's Friends of Scouting Campaign.

Organizations or individuals may contribute an award in honor of someone - an Eagle Scout, a Silver Beaver recipient, Council President, District Chairman;  in memory of a loved one or special Scouter.

1910 Heritage Society

The 1910 Heritage Society was named in recognition of the year in which the visionary early leaders founded the Boy Scouts of America, which was patterned after the popular-Scouting program developed in England by Sir Baden-Powell.

Consider helping to ensure the Scouting legacy for future generations of young Americans.
