What is National Charity League?

For more than 50 years, National Charity League, Inc. (NCL) has thrived as one of the nation’s most distinctive and well-respected mother-daughter membership organizations.  NCL is committed to the development of its members as leaders and is dedicated to volunteerism and supporting philanthropies through hands-on activities in local communities.  NCL has strong traditions of the past, which are honored through cultural education and awareness.  NCL, Inc. was established in Los Angeles, California in 1925 and incorporated in 1958.  Annually NCL members from coast to coast volunteer approximately one million hands-on hours in local communities.  

Who are the members of National Charity League?

 Members are mothers and their daughters in grade 7-12 who are committed to the mission and vision of NCL and who believe in the organization’s core values.  Daughters typically join as they end 6th grade, although our new chapter in Naperville is accepting applications for membership from girls currently in grade 6 – 9.

Newly-formed National Charity League of Greater Naperville is proud to be the first chapter in Illinois.  Most of our members live in the geographic area that encompasses Naperville District 203, Indian Prarie District 204 and surrounding areas.  Our members attend the high schools in these districts, as well as Benet Academy, Hinsdale Central and Wheaton-Warrrenville South, along with the area’s junior high schools. 

Why join National Charity League? 

The NCL Experience inspires and empowers women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors in their communities.  National Charity League is unique because of its multi-generational approach and three-pronged mission – learning to give of oneself and improve the community through philanthropy; learning to lead through hands-on experience in peer groups; and development of cultural competence – for both mothers and daughters.
