Welcome to The Saint Andrew’s Society of San Francisco!

Society officers L to R: David Campbell, President; Francesca McCrossan, 1st VP; Allen Cary, 2nd VP.

Founded in 1863, our society joins men and women of Scottish birth and those of the same heritage in a bond of culture and benevolent purpose, the latter best expressed in our motto:

“OUR AIN ILLS HAE STRENGTH TO BEAR ANITHER’S AYE HAE HEART TO FEEL”

Aid to people of Scots origin or decent in distress remains an important function for us. We cooperate frequently with the British Benevolent Society of San Francisco, and join with such organizations as the Caledonian Club, the PBFSCO and the St. Andrew’s of Oakland and St. Andrew’s of Los Angeles in special projects.

The Duke of Hamilton

His Grace, Alexander Douglas-Hamilton,
16th Duke of Hamilton,
Patron of the Saint Andrew’s Society of San Francisco
