Seems that there are some allegations that the shriners organization, which is part of masonry at least, hasn't been exactly compliant with the law in regards to fundraising.


I'd say that article is a bit skewed. For example, it makes much of Shriner fundraising dollars going to non-charitable expenses, but passes over the fact that they are always identified as such. Such as Shrine log candy bar wrappers and circus tickets stating: "Fundraising For Temple Activities".

I think a more accurate and unbiased view can be found here.

Shriners Hospitals for Children picked up the medical tab for more than 123,000 children last year, due to a massive endowment larger than the economy of the Mediterranean island of Malta.

The author of that article surely has a good sense of humour to cite Malta in the same breadth as a masonic organization!


Its interseting to see that there are other articles on this, I've started a thread on the topic:
Shriners in Debacle over Fundraising
