Our Chapter History


National Charity League, Inc.-Allen began around a kitchen table in the spring of 2010, as a group of community-minded friends gathered to discuss the idea of bringing the philanthropic and leadership opportunities of a National Charity League, Inc. Chapter to their town.   Months of research and groundwork later, the idea became a reality when National Charity League, Inc.-Allen opened its doors in spring 2011, welcoming just under 200 founding members.

National Charity League, Inc.-Allen earned its charter in 2013.

Since then, the Chapter has grown to 230 mothers and daughters who are proud to give of their time and of themselves to the Allen-Lovejoy community’s schools, arts, and philanthropic organizations, while also giving our Ticktockers the opportunity to grow through leadership training and cultural experiences.
