Membership in Jack and Jill of America Inc. is by invitation only. All prospective mothers must be sponsored by a member of the local chapter. Prospective Mothers and their families may be invited to attend select chapter activities. Invitation to these activities is intended to provide interested mothers with opportunities to get acquainted with members of the local chapter.
Invitation to membership is extended on an individual basis after the local chapters voting process is complete. Accepted Mother Candidates are required to meet financial obligations and attend a series of Orientation sessions before being eligible for initiation into the chapter in May.
Mothers may also join the organization using Legacy status. Legacy status is granted to any mother or spouse of a father whose mother graduated in good standing from a chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. and who meets the other membership criteria. The deadline for filing a request for Legacy is January 31st. Legacy forms can be obtained from our National Office or by contacting the local chapter.
