Kosair Shriners

In the 1920’s, doctors and local leaders recognized there was a need to provide long-term medical care to crippled children. Kosair Shrine Temple formed Kosair Charities Committee, Inc. and opened Kosair Crippled Children Hospital. The hospital operated until 1981, when Kosair Charities shifted from direct services to providing crucial grant support, allowing their focus to include all children—not just those in hospital care. Kosair Charities is an independent, grant making organization whose Board of Directors is comprised of nobles.
