Ida Landau Sustainer’s Society


For Alumnae and Friends

Our Founder, Ida Landau was a woman of action. When she married her husband, who was not a U.S. national, the law of the time stated that she had to forfeit her own U.S. citizenship. Ida immediately petitioned Congress bringing attention to the injustice, and leading to the passage of the Cable Act, that ensured women could marry whomever they wanted without losing their citizenship.

Her legacy of action continued when she worked as a war correspondent during WWII and also assisted with relocating Jewish refugees.

For Ida, helping others was second nature.  As a donor to the Educational Foundation, you are just like Ida, making a difference for others.

Be Like Ida:  The Ida Landau Sustainer’s Society recognizes major annual donors to the Educational Foundation. Alumnae who graduated more than 15 years ago and friends of the Educational Foundation who contribute $1,000 or more each year become members of the Ida Landau Society. Alumnae who graduated within the previous 14 years become a member of the ILS with a $500 annual gift.

To Thank You: You will receive the Ida Landau Sustainer’s Society recognition pin and will receive exclusive communication with Sorority news. Ida Landau Sustainer’s Society members will be recognized in the TRIAD and Educational Foundation publications as well as at International Leadership Forum and alumnae events.
