Nestled in Eastern Oklahoma, our chapter is comprised of dynamic women linked together in friendship and service.
The Tulsa Chapter of Links, Inc. was chartered in December, 1964. Over these years, we continue to provide services to our community.
The Chapter supports the programs proposed by the National Headquarters as well as creating our own programs using the guidelines of the five facets.
These five facets have allowed the Tulsa Chapter of Links, Inc. to provide scholarships to needy students attending institutions of higher learning, donate art work to Greenwood Cultural Center, donate books to the African-American collections at Rudisill Library, sponsor health fairs, and sponsor a water wells project in Africa.
