About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Fullerton 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 city of Fullerton and/or Ticktocker attends a Fullerton area school. Exception may be made for applicants from surrounding areas with no NCL Chapter. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Fullerton aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

The Fullerton Chapter of National Charity League. Inc. was founded in 1961 and supports the North Orange County area with hands-on mother-daughter assistance to local charities. For over 50 years, our members have participated in providing assistance to local charities and philanthropic events, gaining cultural awareness through appreciation of many art forms, and developing our daughters as confident young women leaders.

We are proud to continue the efforts of our founders with service to our community. Our chapter began a partnership with Meals on Wheels in 1974, and we continue to be a significant supporter through meal delivery service and financial donations.  Additionally, Ticktockers community involvement includes activities such as collecting and donating dresses for the YWCA Prom Project; volunteering at the Fullerton School District All The Arts summer programs; supporting our troops through Operation Valentine; and volunteering at St. Jude Medical Center.

The tradition of the Senior Presentation, now known as Senior Recognition, continues today. Family and friends celebrate the young ladies graduating from our program at the end of the Ticktockers’ six (6) year journey.

Our chapter has received the Blue Rose Chapter Award for the 2020-2021 year. This is National Charity League, Inc. Highest Chapter Distinction. We not only completed our annual requirements, but our members also go above and beyond for our community.
