Greetings From Our President

Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn more about the dynamic Wilmington (DE) Chapter.

We are delighted to share our rich history and our many contributions to our local and global communities.

We invite and encourage you to visit often and stay as long as you like!


For more than 70 years our membership has provided needed services throughout our community with measurable positive impact.  Our singular goal must continue to be to creatively plan and put into action, services to our community.  The pillars of our organization involve our Facets: Services to Youth, The Arts, International Trends, and National Trends.  These five areas must be thoughtfully interwoven towards enriching the lives of those in our communities and beyond.

For over thirty years, The Achievers Program, our signature leadership and character development program for young men in the 11th and 12th  grade; has been a successful collaboration with the men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.  This program provides the opportunity to create true change agents in our community. 

Our recent partnership with Girls Inc. is an opportunity to support the strong growth and development of young women towards their success in numerous fields of endeavor.  We encourage their growth towards becoming Bold, Strong, Smart young women, who are literate and unafraid to be themselves.

The Wilmington (DE) Chapter of The Links Incorporated hosts the annual Juleps and Jazz Derby Event.  We look forward to this signature fundraiser which boasts over 300 guests who enjoy live music, a wonderful meal, and loads of fun.  A portion of the proceeds go to our scholarship fund, as well as, future programming in our community.

We are delighted that you chose to visit our website.  We look forward to seeing you at our community events.

 In Friendship and Service,

Joan Coker, M.D.
Wilmington (DE) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated
