By uniting individual members efforts, Jack and Jill of America, Inc. has built a strong, cohesive organization that positively impacts the lives of children, families and communities. Jack and Jill's success is based on the depth of commitment, vision, and confidence of its members. We are a membership organization of mothers with children ages 2 to 19 dedicated to nurturing future leaders by supporting children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving, and civic duty. Jack and Jill is divided into 252 local chapters within 7 geographical regions in the United States. Membership can be obtained via legacy status or via invitation.

Membership by Invitation

We appreciate your desire to join our organization. Prospective members must be sponsored by a current member in good standing of the chapter in which they are seeking membership. We encourage interested mothers to make contact with our Jack and Jill members to learn about specific membership guidelines and procedures. If you are unfamiliar with any current members of our chapter, you may choose to network with others in your community to gain contact with a chapter member. Please be aware that membership intake is at the sole discretion of the chapter. Obtaining a sponsor does not guarantee intake into the organization.

Legacy Membership

Legacy status is granted to each child (male or female) who graduates from a Jack and Jill Chapter and whose mother is a member in good standing at the time of the child’s graduation from the chapter. Once the child desires to enter Jack and Jill through their Legacy Status, the legacy will be verified through the chapter by completing and submitting the legacy application. The application should be filled out and forwarded to the current chapter president of the chapter from which he/she graduate. If at the time the chapter cannot verify the legacy, the chapter files at headquarters will be researched to verify Legacy. If a Legacy certificate was filed for the child, it will be in the chapter files in our Washington, DC Headquarters Office.
