About our Chapter

THE NCL, Inc. Mission:To foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.

By living that mission, NCL, Inc. has been making a difference for many decades. For example, our Chapters provide the equivalent of nearly $18 million in volunteer hours annually in support of community philanthropies. Membership is a privilege and carries responsibilities beyond participation in a Chapter and involvement in a local community. The relationship between the National organization and the local Chapter members is mutually beneficial; it honors the prestige of a nationally recognized brand and provides for lifelong friendship and networking.

THE NCL, Inc. Vision:Through the mother-daughter relationship, National Charity League will develop strong women leaders serving and impacting communities today and for generations to come.

It’s a bold Vision, but one that can be realized if everyone involved works together. Membership in NCL, Inc. gives mothers and daughters unique opportunities to strengthen their bond while growing together, sharing of themselves and improving their communities. Ours is the only National organization committed to fostering the motherdaughter relationship through philanthropic, leadership and cultural activities together and in peer groups.

National Charity League, Inc. currently has a presence in 23 states across the country. The West Lakes Chapter is proud to be the 175th Chapter formed and the first in Minnesota! Our Patroness and Ticktocker members have volunteered over 25,000 hours with our philanthropy partners since September, 2012. Our members focus on fulfilling the NCL Experience – a 6 year plan focusing on the Philanthropic, Cultural and Leadership pillars of the organization.
The West Lakes Chapter currently has fifteen philanthropy partners in our community; these partnerships will grow in number along with the Chapter. We have chosen to partner with organizations that address genuine needs in the community and offer a variety of ways for our membership to volunteer.
