Our Chapter

Greater Seattle Links, Incorporated

The Links, Incorporated is a volunteer service organization of concerned, committed, and talented women who, linked in friendship, enhance the quality of life in the larger community. The organization is primarily concerned with enriching, sustaining and ensuring the identities, culture and economic survival of African-Americans and persons of African descent.

To contribute to the formulation of a positive, productive, and culturally diverse society. The Links, Incorporated also focuses on education, cultural enrichment, health and wellness and civic involvement. Within the Greater Seattle area, our community service focuses on youth – with an emphasis on STEAM-related experiential learning, educational access and scholarship, and improving and uplifting the quality of life of African Americans and our broader communities.




We collaborate with museums, symphonies, art councils, educational institutes, and corporations to support art programs that focus on artists of color.



Through education, health advocacy, and optimal utilization of health resources, we promote and facilitate programs that support the maintenance of good health and the elimination of chronic health disparities in communities of color.



We create community programs that increase awareness of issues that affect the quality of life of African-Americans.



We expand the global platform for programs designed and developed to serve the educational, health and cultural needs of people of African descent throughout the world.




Through the recognition of academic excellence and the awarding of scholarships to middle school girls, we are focused on creating a culture of achievement among our youth.
