Freemasonry is the oldest, and estimated to be one of the largest male fraternal organizations in the world. Freemasonry is dedicated to promoting improvement in the character of its members. A Freemason, or Mason, is taught to be a good citizen, to be of good character, to care for those less fortunate, and to give back to his community. That is only a small part of what a practicing Freemason learns. Freemasonry makes good Men better.
Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth with nearly 200 temples (chapters) in several countries and thousands of clubs around the world. Our fraternity is open to men of integrity from all walks of life.
Shriners International also supports Shriners Hospitals for Children®, a health system of 22 locations.
