Our Mission: The Daughters of the Nile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public corporation which maintains a permanent endowment fund to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children®. All monetary donations promote, support, and maintain the philanthropic endeavors that enhance the medical care and treatment of the patients in the Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
This Application Package is available for any Temple member who has an interest in applying to the Daughters of the Nile Foundation Board for a Director position.
The application period for applying for a three-year term position as a Director on the Daughters of the Nile Foundation is now open. For this 2019 application period, there are up to four (4) Director positions available for election.
No Director position requires a person to be a CPA or a qualified financial or investment advisor, as the Board of Directors simply reviews and affirms the professional investment choices of the Wells Fargo Private Bank Investment Management Group. Annual distribution decisions are made by the Foundation Board in accordance with the Board-determined Spending Policy. No Director position is a paid position. Please also be aware that holding a position as a Director requires an annual personal donation to the Foundation of $500 per Director.
If you are interested in being considered as a Director on the Foundation Board of Directors, please submit all information as requested within the Application Package no later than January 31, 2019. If you have any questions regarding being a Director on the Foundation or the application, please use the “Contact Us” option on the Foundation website.
All applications will be reviewed by the Applications Committee. Elections will be held at the Spring 2019 Board of Directors’ meeting. If you are elected to the Board, you will be notified by April 1, 2019, so that preparations can be made for you to attend the July Foundation Board meeting.
