Our Chapter History

The National Charity League, Inc. Lake Sammamish Chapter was founded in early 2008, and was fully chartered in October 2010.

In the NCL tradition, our Chapter initiates and encourages our members to work as mother-daughter teams. We create an abundance of opportunities for our members to participate in hands-on philanthropic activities, build their leadership skills, and experience fun and unique cultural events.

In 2017-2018, our Chapter members provided over 4,400 volunteer hours to local and regional charities. This year, we have 105 Patronesses (mothers), and 123 Ticktockers (daughters). We continue to expand our community outreach and impact each year, and currently partner with 25 philanthropy organizations.

We are proud of our chapter’s history, and celebrate the traditions that they have built. Below is the list of our amazing Chapter Presidents over the years:
