Sustainer Membership

A sustainer is a former active member who has completed at least seven years of active service. While sustainers are not required to attend meetings, work fundraisers, or hold a placement, they often participate by serving on the Sustainer Council or by assisting a committee or placement with their advice and experience.

Our sustainers serve as mentors to the provisional and active members of the League and are a valuable source of support and inspiration to the League as a whole. Many started as volunteers in the Junior League and have gone on to serve as leaders in other charitable and non-profit organizations in the greater Bay Area community.

There are many ways to stay active and involved in the JLSF after becoming a Sustainer.

Benefits/Activities include:

  • Membership in the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) and the Junior League of San Francisco (JLSF)
  • Reduced annual Sustainer dues
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Monthly Sustainer Bridge email newsletters
  • Invitations to exclusive, Sustainer events such as:
    • Sustainer Luncheon
    • Sustainer Tea
    • Sustainer DIADs
    • Sustainer Special Interest Activities
    • Sustainer Community and Cultural Events
    • Sustainer Training and Development Events
