To connect with their peers and go beyond making passive donations with unknown results.
Our members experience firsthand the impact their generosity has in the community today while helping to shape what kind of community it will be in the future.
We are not another networking group. LINC’s unique “philanthroparty” model blends hands-on volunteering with a social twist. Our events and activations give members a chance to enhance their resumes and their communities.
Employers want to win the war on talent and LINC is one way to engage and retain young talent. LINC offers a replicable affinity group model and purpose-driven programming.

Millennials don’t care about giving money, they care about making an impact. We’re not like other networking groups; we’re not power suits and handshakes. We more like hi-fives and hugs
Meet our Members
I have been involved with LINC for more than two years now. I have gained an increased understanding of the challenges in our community and see who’s working to address those challenges. LINC has provided me the opportunity to give my time, designate my financial resources and also allowed me to meet people that I wouldn’t necessarily have crossed paths with. It’s fun and philanthropy all at once.
