Who We Are
Your Support Helps Fund
Formed in 1845, Chicago Scots (formerly the Illinois Saint Andrew Society) is the first and longest running non-profit organization in Illinois.
This year, we are celebrating 175 years of tossing the caber, feasting on haggis and supporting one of the finest senior living and memory care campuses in greater Chicagoland. Today, we welcome anyone who is Scottish by birth, by heritage or simply by inclination!
Put on your tartan and learn more about some of our favorite annual traditions.

Supporting Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care
Our dedication to nourishing Scottish identity through service, fellowship and celebration of Scottish culture allows us the great privilege of supporting our primary charity, Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care, in North Riverside, Illinois.
Our five-acre, forested campus is a beautiful setting for the historic Scottish Home (opened in 1901) and the MacLean House memory care residence (opened in 2016). At Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care, we offer a continuum of care from Assisted Living to Skilled Nursing Care with care provided in the loving, Scottish Way with the greatest respect to the individual.
