About us

About our Fraternity

Shriners International, a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth, founded Shriners Hospitals for Children as its official philanthropy in 1922. What began as one hospital is now a world-renowned health care system with 22 locations in three countries. The fraternity, which has nearly 200 centers in several countries and thousands of clubs around the world, continues to support this unique health care system.


About our Philanthropy

In 1922, the Shriners dedicated themselves to providing specialized medical care for children regardless of the families’ ability to pay.

Today, that philanthropic effort helps support Shriners Hospitals for Children, a health care system with locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Children up to age 18 (and in some cases, up to age 21) with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care. Within these broad service lines, many types of care are provided. For example, some locations offer reconstructive plastic surgery, treatment for craniofacial abnormalities or care for sports injuries. All services are provided in a compassionate, family-centered environment.
