Who We Are
Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth.
The possibilities for having fun as a Shriner are endless. Our local Shrine Centers (chapters) around the world have thousands of activity-based clubs, units and events that provide ways for members to connect with each other in a fun environment. A unique aspect of our local chapters is that creativity is encouraged, and if a club for a particular activity doesn’t exist, members are empowered to create one.
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. Our members are known for their loyalty, camaraderie and their steadfast support of each other, their communities and their philanthropy, Shriners Children's.
