The Divan Officers and Nobles of Kosair Shrine Center, located in Louisville, Kentucky, want to welcome you to our website! Our mission is to support Kosair Charities located here in Louisville, as well as the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children in North America, and to enhance the quality of life for those children who receive medical care.


We as Shrine Masons belong to an organization that was founded in New York City in 1872 by two Masons who felt that there was a need to have a fun side of Masonry, and thus our original title, the "Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine" of North America was established.


In 2010, due to the expansion of Shrinedom in other parts of the world over the years, which included the establishment of Shrine Clubs and more recently permission granted by the Imperial Shrine for the building of the first Shrine Temples beyond North America, our official title was changed to "Shriners International".


In later years following our establishment, the Orthopedic Hospitals and Burn Institutions were established as charities of our Order. Now our 22 Hospitals are known as Shriner Hospitals for Children and Shriners Burn Institutes, but we as Shriners call them the Worlds Greatest Philanthropy.


We are the guys participating in colorful parades, driving those funny cars, clowning around at times and wearing our Red Fez's, but at the same time our commitment to helping kids is what we are really all about.


We work to provide the funding for those helping hands that mend a child's body, so they can have a better quality of life. Wouldn't it be great to belong to such an organization? Thank you for your interest in Kosair Shriners, we're glad that you stopped by for a visit, and we encourage you to tour our web pages to learn more about us. If you have any questions about our organization or how to become a Freemason and eventually a Shriner, then click on the "Contact Us" button on the left, and we'll be glad to talk to you!
