A Message from Our President

Welcome to the website of The Durham (NC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated!

Chartered in 1958,  Our Chapter celebrates a Legacy of 60 years of Leadership, Friendship, Philanthropy and Service.  I am honored to be linked in friendship with 64 phenomenal women who are committed to providing transformative programming and service to the Durham community.  Linked in friendship and connected in service, we provide programming through our Five Facets: National Trends and Services, Services to Youth, The Arts, Health and Human Services and International Trends and Services.  Read more about our Chapter’s ‘award winning’ programs in the “Our Story” section.
