About Us

Renaissance Chapter members are inspired and inspiring

The Renaissance (MI) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, stands on the shoulders of our founding members and the dedicated women who have served tirelessly since our national organization was founded in 1946 on the principles of friendship and service. These values remain the most treasured legacy of The Links, Incorporated, headquartered in Washington, DC.

The Renaissance Chapter was founded in Metro Detroit in 1987. Each member, an inspired and inspiring leader in her own right, is a volunteer who contributes many hours of involvement in a variety of service programs and projects, representing upwards of $250,000 per year in charitable efforts in the Metro Detroit Area alone.

Renaissance Chapter members believe in “caring for our community.”  We are diligently planning our 25th Anniversary Celebration, which takes place on November 4, 2012. This wonderful celebration, aptly named “A Winter Wonderland” provides an opportunity for the chapter to highlight its continuing commitment to serving its community and commemorates a major milestone for this civic organization founded on the principles of friendship and service. The chapter has evolved far beyond it roots as a local organization of 27 original charter members who formed the Michigan Innovators Group (M.I.G.) in 1985 with a mission to contribute to the quality of life in the community through concerted group effort. Two years later, M.I.G. was inducted into The Links, Incorporated and has since been known as The Renaissance Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. We remain dedicated to serving the community with our far-reaching, effective, award-winning programs in five (5) integrated areas of commitment and service.

  1. The Arts
  2. Health and Human Services
  3. Services to Youth
  4. National Trends
  5. International Trends
