Welcome to NCL Cactus Wren!

Cactus Wren was founded on August 26, 2012 as an Expansion Chapter of the National Charity League, Inc.  As the 176th Chapter, we are named after Arizona's Official State Bird, The Cactus Wren. Our members live in the Northeaast Phoenix, Northeast Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Carefree and Cave Creek Areas.

NCL is a non-profit national organization of mothers and daughters who join together in community involvement within local chapters throughout the United States. Daughters, known as Ticktockers enter membership from 7-12 grades.

NCL's mission is to foster strong mother-daughter relationships. This philanthropic organization is committed to philanthropic, leadership and cultural activities.

By living this mission, NCL has been making a difference for many decades. Our chapters provide nearly $18 million in volunteer hours annually. Membership is  a privilege and carries responsibilities to participate in our Chapter activities as well as involvement in our local community. By having a relationship with our National organization structure, it honors the prestige of being nationally 
recognized and it provides our members lifelong friendships and networking.

NCL has established core values that are essential to the character and spirit of our culture, defining our underlying sentiment that informs our beliefs, customs and practices.

National Charity League encourages mothers and daughters to learn, grow and model responsibility and graciousness together. It also empowers women with the confidence to lead, nurtures mentorship, inspires a legacy of social awareness and compassion.
