Wilmington Shrine Club

Welcome to the Wilmington Shrine Club, Wilmington North Carolina’s fraternal organization for men of good character who are dedicated to the principles of brotherhood, charity, and truth. We provide opportunities for our members to develop lifelong friendships, to support their local communities, and to promote the philanthropic efforts of the Shriners organization.

about shriners

The Wilmington Shrine Club is a team of individuals that are passionate about giving and having fun. They organize and participate in parades, excursions, dances, dinners, and athletic events, among other social activities.

As proud members of the Shriners International, they support the “World’s Greatest Philanthropy,” the Shriners Hospitals for Children, which is a network of 22 pediatric specialty hospitals operated and maintained by the Shriners. Children up to 18 years of age who could benefit from the specialized care available at Shriners Hospitals, as determined by the hospital’s chief of staff, are eligible for treatment regardless of their financial status or relationship to a Shriner. The Wilmington Shrine Club is dedicated to supporting this cause and making a positive impact on the lives of children and families in their local community and beyond.

our values


We strive to build strong relationships among our members based on mutual respect, trust, and camaraderie. We believe in the power of a strong brotherhood to support our members and to make a positive impact on the world.


We are committed to supporting those in need, especially children. Shriners operate 22 hospitals across North America that provide expert medical care to children. We also support a range of other charitable causes in our local communities.


We believe in honesty, integrity, and ethical behavior. We strive to uphold these values in all of our interactions, whether with our fellow Shriners, our families, or the wider community.

shriners & Masonry

Becoming a Shriner requires membership in the Masonic fraternity, which is the oldest, largest, and most widely recognized fraternity in the world. Freemasonry traces its roots back to the time when stonemasons and other craftsmen would gather in lodges or shelter houses. Over time, formal Masonic lodges emerged, with members united by their desire to be fraternal brothers rather than by their trade. The Blue Lodge is the fundamental unit of Masonry, where members can earn the first three Masonic Degrees – Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. The highest degree in Masonry is that of Master Mason, and only Master Masons can apply to become a Noble of the Shrine of North America.

The Blue Lodge is Masonry’s fundamental unit, where members achieve the first three Masonic Degrees, Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. Master Mason is the highest degree. After becoming a Master Mason, one can join a variety of additional Masonic organizations that require Blue Lodge Masonry as a condition. Only after achieving the rank of Master Mason can a man petition to become a Noble of the Shrine of North America.

shriners & Shriners Hospitals

The Shriners and Shriners Hospitals are different but inseparable in a unique interdependent connection. Shrine Temples and clubs frequently help arrange and pay for transportation for children and parents to Shriners Hospitals, and thousands of Shriners spend many hours of their own time transporting families to the hospitals and amusing the patients. Additionally, Shriners contribute financially to the hospitals by paying an annual hospital assessment. Several temples and clubs hold fundraisers, the majority of which assist Shriners Hospitals for Children.
