Shriners Believe In Doing Good Work

Shiners believe in brotherhood

We seek to attract men of different backgrounds, career paths, ages and interests, and the unique ideas, beliefs and perspectives they bring to our global Shriners family.

Shriners believe in family

Although Shriners International is a brotherhood, it is also an organization that celebrates the importance of family. Many of our events and activities are designed to include spouses, children and grandchildren, and to promote shared values.

Shriners believe in fun

Shriners International was founded to add fun and fellowship to the Masonic fraternal experience. That tradition continues today. With lots of activity-based clubs and units, Philae Shriners has something for men of all interests and backgrounds.

Shriners believe in philanthropy

In 1922, fueled by their desire to make a difference in the world, Shriners International founded their own philanthropy, Shriners Children’s. Over the past century, it has become one of the largest pediatric sub-specialty healthcare systems in the world with locations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

A Fraternity Defined by FUN, Fellowship and Philanthropy
