The Milwaukee (WI) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated was chartered on December 8, 1962. Since its inception, the chapter has committed its membership and resources to combating the educational, social and financial challenges facing children and families in the Milwaukee Community via a wide range of educational, civic, health and arts-related activities.
The Chapter has proudly awarded over $350,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors and college students. For the past 10 years the chapter has also focused on an integrated program at Metcalfe Elementary school. Internationally, we have supported those struggling to deal with a variety of humanitarian issues via our support of Ebola relief efforts in Sierra Leone, Bras for Tanzanian Women, relief efforts for victims of the hurricane in the Philippines and the earthquake in Haiti. Lastly, the chapter is focused on expanding the community’s access to, and appreciation for the arts and is proudly collaborating with performing and visual arts groups to accomplish that. The Milwaukee (WI) Chapter is dedicated to strengthening the chain of friendship amongst its sister chapters in The Links Incorporated, and actively seeks to collaborate on social and programmatic efforts. As we have for the past 59 years, the Chapter remains dedicated to leading with excellence, and proudly serving the Milwaukee community and The Links Incorporated on the local, Area and National level, with grace.
