An excerpt from the Shriners Creed reads, “As Shriners we look beyond ourselves to serve the needs of others, especially children who cannot help themselves. We believe Shriners Hospitals to be the world’s greatest philanthropy, and we covenant with each other to support its “temples of mercy” with spirit, time, talent, and means.”
Temples of mercy are exactly what the Shriners hospitals have been to thousands of children and their families. Since 1919 when the Imperial Council Session voted to start the first Shriners hospital, until now, the Shriners have dedicated their spirit, time, and talent to this noble cause.
What started as a desire to help others came to fruition in 1922 with the first Shriners hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana. At that time there was an assessment given to each Shriner in the amount of $2.00 per year to help pay for the new hospital. By 1930, thirteen more had been built. From that humble beginning, the Shriners have spent $8.2 billion to operate the hospitals and $1.76 billion for construction. Today there are twenty-two hospitals in all, eighteen orthopedic, three burn centers, and one with orthopedics, burn, and spinal cord injury units. Last year, $721 million dollars was spent for operations and this year alone the Shriners will give $37 million for research.
What is so amazing about the Shriners hospital is not that they have helped millions, nor is it the billions of dollars they have spent to do it. What is truly amazing is that they do it all free of charge to the children and their families. Their maxim,” no barriers to care,” compels them to do this regardless of financial status or whether a family is affiliated with a Shriner. All that is required is that the child be under 18 years of age and that the doctors agree that the problem can be helped by the Shriners hospitals. If these simple requirements are met, everything will be completely taken care of by the hospital.
With singleness of mind and one purpose, “to improve the lives of children,” the Shriners have set the standards for all charities and philanthropic organizations to follow. Those men in funny hats and those crazy clowns marching in parades have managed to touch the lives of millions in the past 85 years. With their undying loyalty to the Shriners organization and their undying desire to help others, they are sure to touch the lives of millions more.
The Knights Templar Eye Foundation has given thousands the gift of sight over its illustrious fifty-year existence. Since its inception in 1956, the foundation has helped nearly 80,000 people in need of surgical treatments to prevent blindness and has spent $98 million. In addition, $9.2 million has been spent on research grants for the prevention of blindness.
The Foundation provides funds to those who face losing their sight due to the need for surgical treatment. They do this without regard to race, color, creed, age, sex, or national origin. All that is required is that the recipients are U.S. citizens and they are unable to pay or receive assistance from current government agencies.
The Knights Templar Eye Foundation is sponsored by the Grand Encampment of Knights Templar of the United States. They are a 501 (c3) charity and as such, all contributions are tax deductible. The foundation is funded by an annual assessment for each Knight Templar, contributions made by Masons, fundraising activities, memorials, and will bequests. Scottish Rite Masons may also join the “33rd degree club” by donating $33 to the foundation.
Knights Templar are proud of their foundation and work tirelessly every year to meet the goals set by the board of trustees. Their efforts have paid dividends in not only helping people keep their sight, but also in making the Knights Templar worthy of its existence. The foundation also strives to keep operating costs down by employing a limited staff. This allows them to give more to those in need. With the efforts of the Knights and the minimalist approach employed by the board of trustees, the foundation will surely continue to be a model charity and will continue providing gifts of sight to thousands in need.

"In the early 1950s in Colorado, the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States initiated a program to help children with speech and language disorders. The results obtained from this program led to the establishment of RiteCare clinics to provide diagnostic evaluation and treatment of speech and language disorders, as well as learning disabilities.
Today, there are 178 RiteCare® clinics, centers, and special programs operating or planned for children and therapists located throughout the United States. Each facility is staffed by speech-language pathologists or other trained personnel. Through the support of Scottish Rite members, these clinics, centers, and programs continue to increase. The value of this philanthropy has long been apparent. Tens of thousands of youngsters across the United States have been helped significantly. With the good work of dedicated clinicians and parents, the Scottish Rite has achieved successes that could only be imagined a few years back. Children who might have remained educationally behind for a lifetime can now talk, read, and lead productive lives. As a rule, the RiteCare® Clinics accept preschool children who have difficulty speaking or understanding the spoken word or school-age children who have difficulty learning to read. Some centers also offer literacy training for adults."
