The Los Angeles Chapter Charitable Trust is the philanthropic arm of The Los Angeles Links, Incorporated. Under Trust guidelines, funding is provided to support the four program facets of The Links, Incorporated which include Services to Youth, The Arts, International Trends and Services and National Trends and Services. All four facets are supported through our “umbrella project,” the annual Cotillion Debutante Ball. The Links, Incorporated has had a long tradition of promoting and engaging in educational, civic and inter-cultural activities in order to enrich the lives of members of the larger community. The Foundation supports worthwhile causes in the general fields of health, education, social services, cultural and international.
