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.
