DAUGHTERS OF THE NILE  WORKING TOGETHER FOR THE CHILDREN


WHO WE ARE


Daughters of the Nile is an international fraternal organization for
women 18 years or older, who are related by birth or marriage to
a Shriner, Master Mason, or Daughter of the Nile, or is a majority
member in Good Standing of a Masonic-related organization for girls; or who was a
patient, with or without Shrine or Masonic relationship, at a Shriners Hospital for
Children®. Founded in Seattle, Washington in 1913, Daughters of the Nile members
total 25,000 in 136 cities throughout the United States and Canada. The members are
proud of their long association with Shriners International and their continuing support of
Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
Daughters of the Nile maintains two permanent endowment funds to benefit
Shriners Hospital for Children®. In the United States, the Daughters of the Nile
Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity. In Canada, the Supreme Temple
administers the Canadian Foundation.
Shriners Hospitals for Children® is a network of 22 hospitals throughout the
United States, Canada and Mexico that are renowned for providing the highest quality
care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special
healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care
environment; providing for the education of physicians and other healthcare
professionals; and conducting research to discover new knowledge that improves the
quality of care and quality of life of children and families. This mission is carried out
without regard to race, creed, sex or sect, disability, national origin or ability of a patient
or family to pay.


WHAT WE DO


Through the Daughters of the Nile Foundation and Canadian Foundation,
Daughters of the Nile contribute over $2 million dollars annually to Shriners Hospitals for
Children® to be used for the medical care and rehabilitation of children. Since 1924,
Daughters of the Nile have contributed more than $56 million, second only to the
Shriners themselves.
In recognition of monetary contributions by Daughters of the Nile, there are gold
plaques, each representing $1 million, or engraved donor name recognition on the
philanthropic walls of all 22 hospitals. Many hospitals have two gold plaques, several
hospitals have three, and the Canadian hospital has four. Each year the members of
Daughters of the Nile give generously of their time and talents to the hospitals by
providing more than 150,000 volunteer hours at the Shriners Hospitals for Children®. In
addition, they sew clothing and make quilts, and provide toys, books, games and other
educational and recreational items for the children’s use, with an annual value of
donated items in excess of $1,000,000.
