Shriners Believe in Giving Back
In 1922, the Shriners dedicated themselves to providing expert medical care for children regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. Today, that philanthropic effort supports 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children® across North America that provide specialized medical care for children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate. Many Shriners Hospitals for Children® are also premier medical research centers and are affiliated with top academic medical institutions in North America.

Shriners Believe in Leadership
You may be surprised to know that Shriners count among their ranks presidents, senators, local business leaders, professional golfers, country music stars, astronauts and actors. But, we think it's just as important to be a leader in your personal life, to be a role model, to be a sounding board, and to simply be a friend. As a Shriner, you will become part of a powerful network of mentors who can help you grow as a man, a father and a husband. You will develop relationships that benefit your business and help you reach your career goals. And you will find that you've become a mentor yourself, passing the lessons of leadership along to the next generation.

Shriners Believe in Family
In many cases, being a Shriner is a family tradition. Although Shriners International is a brotherhood, it has a family component. Many of the fraternity's activities are designed to involve family members, promoting our shared values and helping develop the next generation of community and business leaders. A variety of affiliated groups for both women and children, emphasizing personal growth, fun and friendship participate with Shriners.
