100 Million Dollar Club
Have you thought about this?
It's a great idea - Why not join?
It takes millions of dollars a year to operate the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children. The medical care given through this Shriners Hospital network has cured or substantially helped more than 1,000,000 children regardless of their ability to pay.
The money to operate these 22 hospitals comes from several sources: the $5 annual hospital assessment paid by each Shriner; monies raised by Shrine fundraising events such the East/West Shrine Football Game and Shrine paper sales; and income from the Shriners Hospitals for Children Endowment Fund.
The endowment fund provides approximately 85 percent of the hospitals' operating income. This fund is supported by the gifts and bequests of Shriners and non-Shriners alike. As hospital costs climb and Shriners Hospitals continue to provide more specialized care and conduct more research, the financial need increases.
Too many people, both Shriners and non-Shriners, believe that if they cannot donate or leave a large sum of money, their gift will not count. Obviously, every contribution helps. In order to encourage Shriners and non-Shriners to contribute to Shriners Hospitals for Children, the HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR CLUB was established in 1972. The club got its name from its goal of adding 100 million dollars to the endowment fund through gifts or bequests of $100 or more.
How to join
There are three ways to become a member of the 100 Million Dollar Club: (1) By contributing $100 or more to Shriners Hospitals for Children; (2) By having your will include a bequest of $100 or more to Shriners Hospitals for Children; or (3) By adding a provision to an existing will leaving $100 or more to Shriners Hospitals for Children. All such contributions should be processed through your local Shrine Temple Recorder, Click Here to email us.
What you receive
Each donor receives a handsome 100 Million Dollar Club certificate. By contributing $100, you can feel like a million, knowing that you have helped to ensure that Shriners Hospitals for Children will be able to continue helping children in the years to come.
