We do it all for the kids!
There's more to being a Shriner than the "funny red hat" or all of the goofing around we do. While the Shrine was created as a place for Freemasons to escape the pomp and circumstance of Freemasonry, it evolved into the worlds greatest philanthropy. We provide world class care to children regardless of their ability to pay! Take a look at our 2017/2018 Patient Ambassadors story and hear how those guys in the goofy red hat are making a difference in the lives of amazing children every day.
If you are a man over the age of 21 and you want to be a part of the worlds greatest philanthropy, we would love to have you! Your path to the Shrine depends on your whether you are currently a Freemason. If you are, go to our Affiliates page and print off a Shrine petition. If you are not a Freemason yet, you will need to join them first - once you are a Master Mason, you are qualified to become a Shriner. Petitions for Masonry are also available on our Affiliates page.
