The SIEF was created to support and expand educational opportunities and leadership development of our fraternity members and allied organisations.
Kosair Charities enhances the health and well-being of children by delivering financial support for healthcare, research, education, social services and child advocacy. Kosair envision a word in which children in need live life to the fullest.
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 $50000 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 honourees.
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 honour.
We thank the board of Kosair Charities for their support of Shriners International and their commitment to preparing future leaders of the fraternity.
