If you are looking for a way to help local Shriners patients, we can always put your dollars to work.

Smile  ZEMBO TRANSPORTATION FUND  Laughing 

The Zembo Transportation Fund was established to help provide transportation assistance to our local children who are patients of the Shriners Hospitals for Children.  This program is run by the Nobles of Zembo Shrine, in the "Shepherds Unit", who volunteer their time and energy to making certain that patients who would otherwise be unable to travel to the hospital are able to get to their appointments. The travel expenses associated with this volunteer service are paid for through the generous contributions made to this fund.  These donations are assisting local families every day by allowing them access to the care that their child needs at our Shriners Hospitals for Children. Donations are accepted year round and are tax deductible.  Zembo Shrine's jurisdiction covers patients who reside in the following counties: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Hershey, Lebanon, Juniata, Perry and York.  Lancaster County is a shared jurisdiction.  Zembo represents the western half of Lancaster County, while Rajah Shrine represents the eastern half of Lancaster County. 

If you would like to help support our patient transportation program, donations can be made payable to the ZEMBO TRANSPORTATION FUND and can be forwarded to:  Zembo Shrine Business Office at 2801 North 3rd Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.  Contributions are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.  Just click on the link below to print out a donor form.

How a Will can leave a Legacy

The need for a will has little to do with the size of one’s estate and much more to do with each person’s unique goals.  For example, you need a will if: you care for dependent children or elders; you want to leave a bequest to a special friend, distant relative, or favorite charity; or simply because you do not wish to leave the planning of final affairs to the court system.

Planning is Important

Making a will is an essential process in life planning, requiring careful deliberation and reflection about what has been most important over a lifetime. Wills are as varied as the values of the people who make them. However, effective estate planning is often based on three fundamentals: the financial needs of immediate family are cared for first; planning for heirs comes second; and everything else comes third. In planning your will, you could set aside a certain percentage for charity or leave a favorite cause the share of one heir.

Wills are not just for the wealthy

Many leading institutions have been built not only by the wealthy, but by thousands of regular folks. In fact, it might be said that most people can only make their ultimate charitable gifts at the end of their lifetimes. Changing tax laws offer new opportunities for our donors to benefit their families through charitable planned giving, which may result in tax savings of income, inheritance or estate taxes. A bequest may be directed to a special charitable endowment fund where only the earnings from the gift are used each year and the principal will grow are to ensure children in the future receive the same life-changing services. You will have the enormous satisfaction of knowing your values will be expressed in perpetuity by providing ongoing support to a cherished cause.

*Description of Zembo Shrine Funds

The “Zembo Building Fund” was established for the preservation and upkeep of our beautiful structure.  The “Zembo Transportation Fund” was established to help our Shepherds Unit provide transportation assistance to the Central PA patients of the Shriners Hospitals for Children who are in need of transport from the Zembo jurisdiction to their Shriners hospital appointments.  If you would like to have the bequest go to Zembo’s general fund, allocated for special projects and general expenses, please make the bequest to “Zembo Shrine”.
