Following is information from Shriners International General Order # 1.

 “It is natural to associate the fez with Shriners Hospitals for Children. Because of this meticulous attention must be given to all fundraising activities, including circuses, to make certain that such activities comply with the law of the land and that a contributor is not lead to believe that his money will be used for the Hospitals when all or a portion thereof will be used otherwise.  The integrity of our charity and of our fraternity must remain above reproach.” 

 

Before your club or unit plans or participates in a fundraiser, be it fraternal or charitable contact the Recorders Office for specific information.
