FAQs

How can I become a Sustainer?

A Junior League member who has reached 40 – 49 years of age with three years of Active service or who, regardless of age, has contributed 10 years of Active service is eligible to become a Sustainer. Many members contribute more than 10 years Active service, so don’t think you MUST go Sustaining after 10 years!

What do I need to know about Sustainer dues?

Membership dues are due April 1.

Sustainer dues amounts are as follows:

$170 up to age 64 (Age as of June 1st) |  $95 ages 65 to 79 | $0 age 80+

What opportunities are available?

We have volunteer opportunities, trips, parties, and educational events scheduled throughout the year. Please see below for opportunities for the 2021 – 2022 year!

I'm new to Dallas, can I transfer my membership?

Junior League members new to Dallas can transfer their membership by contacting your current League and setting the process in motion. Questions about transferring can be answered by Kristianne Hinkamp, 214-357-8822.

Who should I contact for questions?
