Who are the Shriners?
Shriners is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship, and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, truth, and relief.
Throughout history both the Freemasons and Shriners have had a reputation for secrecy, but our mission is straightforward. Shriners are committed to:
Being the premier fraternal organization for men of good character.
Providing attractive, quality programs and services for its members, their families and their friends in a spirit of fun, fellowship, and social camaraderie.
Fostering self-improvement through leadership, education, the perpetuation of moral values, and community involvement.
Serving mankind through the resources of its philanthropy: Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
