San Bernardino

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., San Bernardino 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 San Bernardino County. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, San Bernardino aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

The NCL, Inc. story began in 1925 when a small group of women founded the organization in Los Angeles. They supported the American Red Cross by making layettes and assembling food baskets. The women engaged their daughters’ support, and by 1938, the daughters formed their own group.

In 1947, both groups united to become the nation’s first mother-daughter philanthropic organization, calling itself “National Charity League.”

NCL expanded its program beyond philanthropic work to include leadership and cultural experiences. In 1958, National Charity League was reorganized and incorporated as two separate organizations: National Charity League, Inc. and National Charity League, Los Angeles Founder Chapter.

NCL, Inc., San Bernardino Chapter is a group of California mothers and daughters in San Bernardino County who have come together committing to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, San Bernardino aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving their communities together. We are the 6th NCL, Inc. Chapter to form in the United States.

Cultural Experiences

As future leaders, we continually strive to build stronger ties with our communities and the individuals within them. It is through this understanding that we grow and develop broader worldviews that will shape and support our lives.

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.
