National Charity League, Inc. (NCL), consists of more than 50,000 active members. It is the largest nationally established Mother-Daughter organization in the country.  The mission of NCL is to foster Mother-Daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to Community Service, Leadership Development and Cultural Experiences. This entails a 6-year plan of growth, experience and development side by side with their mothers, with the girls’ leadership roles expanding as they progress into the higher grade levels. By senior year, each girl has participated in many cultural experiences, touched many hearts with their community service hours, built public speaking skills, learned how to run a board meeting, and planned special events. The girls also take on different leadership roles through the 6-year plan including President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Inspiration, and Communication Officer.

Currently, NCL Desert Cities Chapter is one of  over 190 NCL chapters in 23 states, providing volunteer support to many local charities including the following:  American Cancer Society, Bianca Rae Foundation, Braille Institute, Coachella Valley Autism Society, Desert ARC, Desert Best Friends Closet, Desert Sands Unified School District, Desi Strong Foundation, Jordan Outreach, La Quinta Library, Make a Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels, Narrow Door, National Junior Tennis League, Old Town Artisan Studio, Operation Homefront, Patriot Ride, Safehouse of the Desert, Special Olympics of the Desert, and Tour De Palm Springs.
