The Daughters of the Nile, founded in 1913, is a benevolent, international, fraternal organization and is open to any person related by birth or marriage to a Mason, Shriner, or Daughter of the Nile. These women have contributed millions of dollars to Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Each year, through the Supreme Temple Convalescent Endowment Fund and Convalescent Relief Fund, Daughters of the Nile contribute to the hospitals for prostheses, orthoses, shoes, etc., for outpatients. In addition, many Temples sew garments and quilts, provide toys and hold parties for the children in the hospitals. They also contribute thousands of hours yearly in volunteer work at the hospitals.
The first Temple, or chapter, was organized in 1913 and now boasts 148 Temples throughout the United States and Canada, with the principal officer of each local Temple having the title of Queen. The top official of the Supreme Temple has the title of Supreme Queen.
