Mission Statement

Shriners International 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®.
