General News Items
Supreme Council Dues Reduction Program
Wouldn’t it be great if something you did on a regular basis helped you reduce the amount of your Scottish Rite dues? Well, now it can!
The Supreme Council has begun a program to allow individual Scottish Rite masons to reduce their dues by shopping through OneCause. With OneCause, you register on their site, associate with your cause (in our case the “Scottish Rite Freemasonry, NMJ” cause), and purchases made through participating online merchants, begun via the OneCause website, will apply a percentage of the transaction amount to your dues. The maximum percentage is 20%, although the average percent is between 2% and 6%.
To sign up, you need an email address, and must specify your cause. A link on the Supreme Council Membership Services web page will take you right to the appropriate OneCause page, or you may follow this link directly.
Once on the OneCause page, if you click “Shop to Support This Cause” in the left hand navigation area, you’ll be taken to a page to register. If you select the “Help” link in the upper left, you can read a list of Frequently Asked Question. There are other helpful links on the front page, including a short flash video to explain to you how the program works.
If you shop regularly online with merchants like Amazon, Staples and many others, a percentage of your purchase is applied to your dues. The only requirement is that you start the shopping experience from the OneCause page, by clicking on that merchant’s link.
