National Charity League, Inc. (NCL) is the nation’s most distinctive, well-respected mother-daughter membership organization and is committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. We are starting a new North Woods chapter that will encompass the school districts of Wayzata, Plymouth, Maple Grove and the northwest Minneapolis area. If you would like to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences and are interested in membership in NCL, read on!

NCL, Inc. is unique because of its multi-generational membership and its Mission-focused program, “The NCL Experience,” inspires and empowers women and their daughters to become confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors in their communities. For more than 50 years, NCL, Inc. has been developing women leaders through volunteerism and supporting philanthropies with hands-on activities in local communities throughout the nation. NCL, Inc. was established in Los Angeles, California in 1925 and incorporated in 1958.

The chapter is designed for mothers (Patronesses) and their daughters (Ticktockers) in grades 7-12. The three philanthropies we will be partnering with are the Special Olympics of Minnesota, Ronald McDonald House, and Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners (IOCP). There will be other service opportunities in addition to these organizations.
