History

The Society
The Clan Forbes Society is a nonprofit organization founded in 1979 to honor the heritage of the descendants of the ancient Clan Forbes of Scotland. The Society is not affiliated with any other group and is devoted exclusively to the interests of its members. The Society has received the encouragement of Lord Forbes, hereditary Chief of Clan Forbes. It is also recognized as a tax exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service.

Goals
The Society's efforts are directed toward historic, educational, and patriotic activities related to Clan Forbes and its Scottish foundations. We strive to share the common interests of kinship as well as collect and preserve the records and artifacts of Forbes Clansmen. It is our aim to honor our Clan Forbes origins and inspire among our members and their families the pride and spirit of our Scottish ancestors.

Participation
While we welcome the comradeship of all who have a Scottish heart, applications for active membership are accepted only from descendants of a Scottish Forbes ancestor. Both male and female applicants are equally welcome as active members and each membership is considered as a family group. The Society may also proffer honorary memberships to individuals who have been of exceptional service to Clan Forbes or the Society.
