About Us

The Scottish Society of Indianapolis, Inc. is an Indiana non-profit social club founded in 1983 by our Founder and President Emeritus, Carter Keith. The Society also sponsors the Indianapolis Scottish Foundation, a tax exempt charity formed to support education in Scottish arts, history, culture, and genealogy. We have a few hundred members of all ages who are genealogists, artists, historians, re-enactors, musicians, dancers, story tellers and just those who enjoy celebrating all things Scottish.

The Society & Foundation promotes education about Scottish culture and heritage through monthly meetings and a wide variety of activities that you can explore at this web site. We keep our annual dues low ($25 for individuals / $35 for a family) so both individuals and families can enjoy our monthly events which generally include a pitch-in dinner by the members and a fun, educational program or entertainment. It is truly a family night—while we adults are having one program, our young members get to have a program of their own with Scottish games and learning tailored to their age groups (though for some events, we celebrate together as a group.

We hope you will explore our website and come visit us at one of our events. The monthly dinner meeting is probably the best opportunity to really get to know who we are.
