About Our Chapter
NCL, Inc., Murrieta-Temecula 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 or attend school in the Temecula or the Murrieta areas. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Murrieta-Temecula aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.
As a relatively new Chapter of National Charity League, Inc., we are excited about our mission and activities and actively growing our Chapter’s membership, partnered philanthropies and impact on those we serve.
We established in 2016, by our founders Dina Gomez and Jenni Holland, with nearly 100 mothers and daughters and currently have over 180 members, we are establishing roots in our community, looking inward to cultivate the mother-daughter relationship and outward to improve the lives of people in our local communities.
Murrieta-Temecula Chapter serves local non-profits in the greater Inland Valley and are always looking for new opportunities to make a change in our community. We are continuing to grow and accept membership for mothers and daughters who reside or attend school in the cities of Murrieta or Temecula and surrounding areas.
By subscribing to the NCL, Inc. Mission, we believe that the NCL Experience — comprised of the Three Pillars of Community Service, Leadership Development and Cultural Enrichment — inspire and empower women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors in their communities.

Mothers and daughters of each class attend a cultural experience together with a focus on different areas of art, theatre, dance and music.
Each Chapter celebrates the richness of its history through traditions that honor the past. The Mother Daughter Tea is an NCL, Inc. tradition. Today, NCL chapters around the country continue to embrace their long-standing traditions, as well as, create new ones.
Some of our favorite cultural experiences:
Our Chapter also has many opportunities to share in fun activities as a chapter as well.
Our annual tea is a tradition passed down in the history of our organization. We are able to enjoy each other’s company while teaching our girls etiquette and networking. We also have our junior fashion show at our tea each year.
At the end of each year we celebrate our seniors and present awards to our members. It is a time of reflection and celebration for the chapter.
Little/Big Sister Program
Our older girls mentor and guide our younger girls during their first 3 years of the program. The littles and bigs share some meetings and fun activities. This year we did a sock exchange!
