Daughters of the Nile was founded for character building among women, social interaction and service to others.  These ideals led to our work for the special children of Shriners Hospitals for Children. 

Daughters of the Nile adopted Shriners Hospitals for Children as its sole philanthropy in 1925 and has given over 50 million dollars thus far through the Supreme Temple, Daughters of the Nile Foundation and Canadian Foundation.  Annual donations are in excess of $1.5 million.
