Kosair Charities grant supports SIEF

The Shriners International Education Foundation (SIEF) was created to support and expand educational opportunities and leadership development of our fraternity members and allied organisations. Since establishing SIEF, we’ve expanded offerings to include distance learning programs via live webinars and on-demand video training, and enhanced program content at our seminars.

Kosair Charities also believes that education is a critical component to the success of our fraternity and we are pleased to announce their support of SIEF, through a generous grant of $50,000 to further enhance training programs for current and future fraternity leaders – helping to provide the necessary tools to more effectively lead our hospitals and temples.

John Piland, executive vice president of Shriners International, accepted the grant on behalf of Shriners International at the Shriner Appreciation Reception hosted by Kosair Charities on Oct. 3. The evening celebrated the history of both organisations, while providing an update on grant recipients, future goals, and recognising key honorees.

“Shriners International Education Foundation is extremely grateful to Kosair Charities,” said Piland. “This partnership will allow the fraternity to make a sustaining impact by providing education, training and leadership development at the 2020 Assistant Rabban Seminar, and strengthening other efforts.”

Representatives of Kosair Charities will attend the 2020 Assistant Rabban Seminar in Tampa, Florida, March 9-11, 2020, and the closing reception will be named in their honor.

“We are proud of this grant and are looking forward to great impact with it as we help future Shrine leaders better understand leadership, responsibility and our mission to help children,” said Keith Inman, president of Kosair Charities.

We thank the board of Kosair Charities for their support of Shriners International and their commitment to preparing future leaders of the fraternity.
