Sustainers

The Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, Inc. (JLOEB) welcomes all League members who, after a minimum of six (6) fully placed active years of Junior League service, excluding leave of absence years, choose to become a sustainer member. We also enthusiastically welcome sustainers transferring from other Leagues.

Sustainers use their Junior League training and expertise to share with JLOEB committees as advisors or with other community organizations within the Oakland and the East Bay area.

The  2017-2018 JLOEB Sustainer Council Director is Kristina Gentleman.

For questions, please reach out to: sustainer@jloeb.org.

Lillian Fletcher Nichols Sustainer of the Year Award

The Lillian Fletcher Nichols Sustainer of the Year Award showcases outstanding Sustainers who are role models for all other members in transitioning their Junior League training and experience into the wider community.
The Sustainer of the Year award was created in 1982 to encourage more connection with our  Sustaining members. It was named the Lillian Fletcher Nichols Award in honor of Lillian, the second President of the Fenton League (predecessor of Oakland-East Bay).  Lillian led the completion of our application process to become a Junior League.  She also was the perfect role model for women who not only serve the Junior League but also – and importantly –  take their Junior League talents out into the community.  She served as a Trustee of Stanford University for thirteen years and was a prominent figure in many other Bay Area civic affairs.
