About Shriners

The Ancient Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine was founded in 1872 by a group of 13 men belonging to the Masonic Order. It was originally established to provide fun and fellowship for its members.

On January 3, 1888, Imperial Potentate Sam Briggs granted the dispensation for Al Kader Shrine. On February 15, 1888, members of Islam Shrine conferred the Shrine degrees in Portland, Oregon. There were fourteen original members.

Al Kader Shriners was the first Shrine Center to be established in the Pacific Northwest. Originally located in the City of Portland, our home is now in Wilsonville.

Al Kader History Slide Show

Irving W. Pratt was elected the first Illustrious Potentate on February 15, 1888. Al Kader was the 46th charter and the first in the Pacific Northwest. Pratt’s great grandson, Noble Ard Pratt – Potentate in 2009, is today an active Al Kader Shriner.

Now, there are approximately 300,000 Shriners. They gather in 196 Shrine Centers throughout the United States, Canada, Germany, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and the Republic of Panama. In 2010, in order to reflect the growth of the Shrine outside North America, we became Shriners International.

Shriners Hospital

The Imperial Council met in Portland, Oregon, in 1920. Al Kader Shriners and their delegation helped to write that indelible page in the Book of Humanity, and thus began the Shriners Hospitals for Children, for it was here that the movement to define our philanthropy began.

There are now 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children providing care for orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate.

Shriners Hospital Portland

These hospitals have helped more than one million children — regardless of a families' ability to pay. --since the first Shriners Hospital for Children opened in Shreveport, LA in 1922.

We are very fortunate to have one of the Shriners hospitals located in Portland. In 1924, the original Shriners Hospital opened in Portland at NE 82nd Ave.and Sandy Boulevard.

Eventually, it was decided to build a new facility within the Oregon Health Sciences medical complex, overlooking the downtown area from the West Hills, at a capital investment of over $25 million. The Portland Hospital specializes in orthopedic treatment and surgery, includes a Research Center and is also a teaching facility. In 2010, an $85 million expansion of the Portland Hospital was dedicated, and is in use today.

Since that time, for over almost 95 years, more than a million children with orthopedic problems, burns and spinal cord injuries have been treated up to their 18th birthday, in a network of 22 hospitals providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals.
