Keys to the Community
The Keys to the Community program strives to enrich the lives of Frankfort’s African-American children by giving them access to top-of-the-line piano instruction and exposing them to the wonders of classical music. It is sponsored by the Frankfort/Lexington Chapter of The Links, Incorporated in cooperation with the Division of Performing Arts at Kentucky State University.
The generous support of the Frankfort Lexington Chapter of The Links, Incorporated enables those admitted to receive free piano lessons with KSU's Piano Faculty and Students.
The Links, founded in 1946, is a women’s volunteer service organization committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the cultural and economic survival of African-Americans and other persons of African-American ancestry. A premier international service organization with more than 12,000 members in 274 chapters located in 42 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, continues its legacy of friends providing service that changes lives, established by the original circle of nine friends in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
With over 2 million service hours recorded in the past three years, members regularly contribute more than 500,000 documented service hours in their respective communities annually. The Links Foundation, Incorporated, the philanthropic arm of The Links, Incorporated, has made more than $24 million dollars in charitable contributions since its founding. Working closely with its sponsors and supporters, The Links, Incorporated are ‘Linked in Friendship – Connected in Service.’
