President’s Message

As my year as President of the Daughters of the Nile Foundation comes to an end this month, I want to thank all members of Daughters of the Nile for their unending support of the Foundation’s mission. 

The Foundation was extremely excited to give $2,150,000.00 recently to Shriners Children’s for our 2023 donation. In our 100 years of giving we now are proud to be able to report our donations exceed over $75million. 

 I have enjoyed my years as a member of the Board and I plan to always continue support as needed. 

It is my pleasure to announce the new 2024-2025 Officers and Board members. 

Joni Lerud-Heck – President 

Vickie Hill – Vice President 

Margaret Silvers – Secretary 

Kathy Gough – Treasurer
