Our Chapter History
National Charity League, Inc., San Tan Chapter was founded in April 2004 and became a fully chartered chapter in 2006, the 123rd chapter in the National Charity League, Inc. Our chapter was named after the San Tan Mountains that silhouette our community. Today our chapter has 175 members and serves 24 Philanthropies.
The San Tan Chapter of National Charity League, Inc. was founded in 2004, by a group of civically engaged women and their daughters. As NCL, Inc. grew in the Phoenix Valley and as residents began to move further to the East Valley, new NCL, Inc. chapters were needed. The San Tan Chapter of NCL, Inc. has grown since it first began and currently includes most of the Chandler, Gilbert, and Queen Creek areas. In addition, as other Valley Chapters are at capacity we are still continuing to grow, allowing those from all over the Valley to join our Chapter.
Our San Tan Chapter of NCL, Inc. thrives on the Mother/Daughter bond. We strive to ensure that our mothers and daughters in the San Tan Chapter of NCL, Inc. are challenged by and fulfilled with leadership and philanthropic activities. We are a growing chapter as the community around us continues to grow in the Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek area. Our chapter is open to members from all over the Valley. We encourage all members to participate in a leadership role and support one another.
National Charity League, Inc. is a national organization of mothers and daughters. The mothers are called Patronesses and the daughters are called Ticktockers. The mission of NCL is to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. Membership in this organization and our program – the NCL, Inc. Experience: Six-Year Core Program – will offer opportunities to participate in each of these three program areas:
· Community Service: Our desire is to learn what philanthropic needs exist in our community and to help meet those needs whenever possible.
· Leadership Development: Our intent is to enhance potential leadership skills through team building, problem solving, mentoring, and group dynamics.
· Cultural Experiences: Our goal is to create an environment that nurtures a positive identity by recognizing and appreciating the value of differences in each other and the world.
