Chicago Scots Membership Collage

Membership

Kinship for All — Join 0 Members in Supporting Chicago Scots!

In honor of our 175th Anniversary, as the oldest nonprofit in Illinois, we launched a new membership program to celebrate Scottish identity with you in mind.

COVID-19 taught us we are stronger together. Chicago Scots membership program is open to everyone who is Scottish by birth, heritage, or simply inclination. Come join our growing community. Membership helps transmit the proud assurance of what it means to be Scottish, from one generation to the next.

When you join as an individual member or select a higher level of membership engagement, you will 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.
