About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Addison Chapter is a group of mothers and daughters who have come together in a commitment to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
Members shall reside in the Dallas Metropolitan Area. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Addison aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

National Charity League (NCL) Inc., Addison Chapter was formed in 2001 by a small group of mothers who had a vision of mothers and daughters serving their community together, and that is still the heartbeat of our Chapter. The first patroness meeting in 2001 hosted 75 mothers. Today we have over 200 mother-daughter members in grades 7 through 12 who perform more than 5,000 hours of hands-on volunteer service for 22 charities and non-profit organizations in the Dallas community each year. Through this work, NCL, Inc., Addison Chapter develops socially responsible community leaders who have a positive impact on the communities in which they live.


Our chapter was awarded with the Blue Rose Award for the 2020-2021 year as a result of our members’ dedication to serve our community. The Blue Rose Award recognizes the fulfillment of annual required volunteering hours, which was exceded by our members, and the participation in NCL National Programs such as the Giving Tuesday, The National Philanthropy Programs, and the Sustainer Event.
