About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Sunflower 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 McKinney and Prosper area. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Sunflower aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

Who We Are

National Charity League, Inc. has seen impressive growth in North Texas, boasting over twenty-five Chapters in the DFW metroplex!  Founded in 2012,  the Sunflower Chapter of McKinney and Prosper is named for the strong and cheerful sunflower, which grows abundantly in our area.  Therefore, the strength, beauty and sunny personality of this flower is a fitting symbol for our members to model.

Our membership is comprised of girls in grades seven through twelve living in the McKinney and Prosper area, and their mothers. We support the Collin County area with volunteer opportunities throughout the county, with a strong focus on McKinney and Prosper.

What We Believe

The girls in our Chapter participate in a six-year program, designed to take them through an age-appropriate experience focusing on community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.  This framework is based on the following concepts:

  • Honoring the mother-daughter bond by learning, growing and modeling responsibility and graciousness.
  • Empowering women with the skills and confidence to lead.
  • Nurturing through mentorship.
  • Inspiring a legacy of social awareness and compassion.
  • Providing depth of support in local communities.
  • Integrity and excellence in everything we do.


National Charity League, Inc. is committed to the development of mothers and daughters as leaders, and is dedicated to improving local communities through hands-on volunteerism.

The NCL Experience inspires and empowers women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors to society.


Mothers (Patronesses) and daughters (Ticktockers) participate in a six-year core program of community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. Members who continue their affiliation with the organization after high school graduation are welcomed throughout their lives as Sustainers. As a result of the NCL Experience, the participants become confident, well rounded and socially aware contributors to society.


What We Do

The Sunflower Chapter is truly impacting the lives of its members and the surrounding community.

  • 27,385 total chapter-wide volunteer hours since founding in 2012.
  • Most volunteer hours are worked as a mother-daughter team.
  • Member and chapter nominations for the Volunteer Group Award by Volunteer McKinney.
  • Nationwide, NCL, Inc. members volunteered nearly 3 million hours last year.

Who We Support

The Sunflower Chapter members volunteer for over twenty local philanthropies, serving as a valuable resource for the area. The volunteer work includes a wide range of experiences, from working with foster children, assisting the elderly or working with community members with special needs.  As a result, our members get out and learn about the community around them!



Our chapter has received the Blue Rose Chapter Award for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 years.  This is the highest award given to a Chapter.  The Blue Rose Award is given to a Chapter who completes annual requirements, participates in #GivingTuesday and the national philanthropy program, and holds a Sustainer Event.
