The Opportunity is Here
National Charity League, Inc.’s “Inspire Innovation Fund” is designed to support our youngest female members (grades 7-12) with the power to change the tide. Imagine the potential of a young girl’s passion translated into action. Then imagine the results for years to come as this experience translates into future leadership and service. When young women are inspired, a sea of opportunity is created, and lives change.
Being inspired to have the freedom to try new things creates a foundation for future leaders and philanthropists. Young women practicing leadership and exploring new ideas set a mighty stage for lifetime success.
This is a bold effort to support our youngest members’ practice of philanthropy by turning their most inspiring dreams into action. The fund will provide competitive grant funding to National Charity League’s chapters, through our Ticktocker Councils, to bring fresh program ideas forward in the areas of leadership, philanthropy, and culture. Each year, our young women’s most innovative concepts will be submitted and funded with the intention of turning the very best ideas into reality.
Through the generosity of a $250,000 anonymous challenge match gift, we seek to raise the additional $250,000 by December 2025. Every dollar raised will be doubled through this generous match. Imagine the power of the multiplier effect. With your investment, we will achieve our goal of establishing a $500,000 fund that inspires innovation and leadership in local communities through our local chapters.
