If you donate it to the Shriner's Hospitals, then 100% of it passes through to the hospital. If you simply donate it to your local Shrine Club, or
Shrine Temple, then they can distribute it as they see fit.
If they are holding a fundraiser for the the Shriner Hospitals, then 100% of anything obtained during that event goes directly to the hospital.
For your proof, you'll have to go read the 501(c)3 laws that regulate not-for-profit organizations, and fundraising activities.
My local Shrine Temple was once involved in a lawsuit with a subgroup within the organization for this very thing. They little car club had a
fundraising event, and the Shrine Temple wanted to keep some of the money for hosting the event, but there was some print materials that mentioned the
Shriner's Hospitals, and because of that it would have been unlawful to keep a single cent for the local organization.
There have been other occasions where the Hospitals have sued outside fundraising organizations for using their likeness or name in a fundraising
activity and then keeping a percentage of the funds, and this was also unlawful, and they had to cough up all the money to the hospitals.
