Daughters of the Nile is a benevolent international fraternal organization for women who are related by birth or marriage to a Shriner, Master Mason, Daughter of the Nile or a Majority Member in good standing of a masonic organization for women.
Daughters of the Nile were founded in 1913 by 22 progressive women with strength of purpose and vision. Currently there are 139 Temples throughout North America.
The purpose of 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 the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.
The Supreme Temple is the governing body for our international organization. The Supreme Temple is comprised of the Supreme Temple Officers, Board of Directors and delegates from each subordinate temple.
