About Our Chapter

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

The San Francisco Chapter of the National Charity League, Inc. was chartered in December of 2004. As the first “urban” chapter in the NCL, Inc. family, the San Francisco Chapter has had a huge impact on the mission statement and direction of NCL, making it less of a “social” and more of a philanthropic entity over the years. We are committed to hands-on philanthropic engagement within our community.
