About Glendale Chapter
Our Chapter was organized in 1942 and became the first chartered Chapter in 1951, as part of the expansion of the Los Angeles Founder Chapter. Our Chapter then became part of the reorganized and incorporated National Charity League, Inc., in 1958. Currently, NCL, Inc., Glendale Chapter has over 200 Active, Provisional and Sustainer members who provide countless hours of service to our philanthropies. Our signature events include our Senior Recognition Ball, Sellebration, the Senior Tea, From the Heart Blood Drive, and the Mother/Daughter Awards and Fashion Show.
NCL, Inc., Glendale Chapter is comprised of Patronesses (mothers) and Ticktockers (daughters) who work together to address the philanthropic needs of the communities in Glendale, La Canada, La Crescenta and the surrounding areas. Together they participate in cultural and educational activities based on an age-appropriate Six-Year Plan designed to develop philanthropy experience, leadership skills and cultural awareness. Ticktockers are organized by grade level from 7th through 12th grade and are led by Patroness leaders (Grade Level Advisors) who coordinate meetings, activities and philanthropic participation around the organization’s Six-Year Plan. Patronesses gather together monthly at Chapter-wide meetings devoted to the business of the Chapter.
