Kinship for all

Membership helps transmit the proud assurance of what it means to be Scottish,  from one generation to the next.

Being a member is being part of something bigger than ourselves. By joining or renewing your membership today, you become an invaluable part of Chicago Scots’ history and mission. 

Becoming a Chicago Scot is the best way to get involved, connect to the Scottish community in Chicago, and ensure that Scottish culture and values live on for generations to come. It’s also a great way to support our principal charity Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care.
