Welcome to the St Andrew’s Society of Oakland

Serving the East Bay

About Us

We are a benevolent organization founded in 1878 by Scotsmen to support brethren in times of need. Although the society has evolved since 1878, we still maintain our Scottish roots and our benevolence extends to many needful and worthwhile causes.

We organize several social functions per year, which are all very well attended and enjoyed by all, These include a Burns Supper, Society picnic, Annual Banquet and a Christmas tea for our “experienced” members
