About Charitable Giving
Convalescent Relief Account
A Donor Gift to the Convalescent Relief Account, or CRA, is pooled with all other contributions, within a Daughters of the Nile Foundation fiscal year, to be distributed to Shriners Hospitals for Children¨. CRA is what we refer to as the NOW fund, as it provides money for a specific fiscal year.
It is important to recognize that CRA is vital to the whole philanthropic picture of Daughters of the Nile and that anyone wishing to have her gift used NOW should make it payable to the Daughters of the Nile Foundation and note Convalescent Relief Account in the memo line of the check.
January 1st begins the fiscal year for the Daughters
of the Nile Foundation, at which time the net interest/income from
the Convalescent Endowment Fund is distributed to Shriners Hospitals
for Children¨. Personal donations, organization fund-raising donations
and the Subordinate Temples' Christmas donations are included in the
amount given to SHC.
