Celebrating 95 Years of Philanthropy

 

Dear NCL Friends,

The year 2020 marks our landmark 95th anniversary year for National Charity League, truly an inspiring time. Since 1925, we have practiced philanthropy and built a multi-generational organization of mothers and daughters who now volunteer nearly three million hours annually to over 4,000 local philanthropies. As we celebrate these milestone accomplishments, we are also excited about our future as membership continues to grow within existing chapters and through the formation of new chapters. Demand for NCL has never been greater!

One of the key strategies of our Vision 2022 is to increase donations and sponsorships to help support future growth. In response, NCL is investing in fundraising capabilities to accelerate program development and further NCL, Inc.’s stated purpose, “to encourage the establishment of new chapters and to support affiliated chapters.” With the recent launch of our 95th Anniversary Forever NCL campaign to raise $95,000 to support sustainer program development, we continue the NCL impact journey. If you have already joined us in furthering this journey, we thank you for your support. If not, we hope you will consider participation, sharing giving opportunities with your friends, families and co-workers.

As we celebrate nearly a century of mothers and daughters working together in communities to create positive social impact, we are reminded that philanthropy, defined as “the active effort to promote human welfare,” is what NCL is all about. We are grateful for your passion for giving and believing in the generational promise of Forever NCL.

With gratitude,
