Working Together for the Children
The Daughters of the Nile Foundation makes it possible for the Daughters of the Nile to contribute over $1 Million annually to the twenty-two Shriners Hospitals for Children®. This effort is realized from the accumulation of contributions directly to the Foundation, through the Stepping Stones to Happiness Certificate program, and the My Gift Incentive Program. Since 1924, Daughters of the Nile has contributed monetary gifts amounting to over $45 million.
The members of Daughters of the Nile are proud of their Gold Plaques on the Donor Recognition Boards in all 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children®, each representing a contribution of over $1,000,000. To date, 11 of the hospitals have received over $2,000,000 which is represented by a second Gold Plaque in those hospitals. In July 2009, a third Gold Plaque was added to the Canadian Hospital in Montreal representing contributions of over $3,000,000 to that hospital.
Each year the members of Daughters of the Nile give generously of their time to the hospitals by providing more than 150,000 volunteer hours at the Shriners Hospitals for Children®. In addition they sew clothing and quilts, and provide toys, books, games and other educational and recreational items for the children with an annual value of over $900,000.
