The British Benevolent Society of California provides aid and relief to British Citizens in need.  Our support comes from generous donations, legacies and fundraising by members, and our community in California.

Throughout the year, we organize community events around the Bay Area where we offer our members a chance to mingle with other Brits in a social setting.  Our numerous community events are British focused and fun!  They range from monthly happy hours to theater in and around the Bay Area to our annual Christmas Dinner.  The idea behind all of our events is to provide you with the feeling that you are back at home in the UK.

With your help and involvement we can:

  • Continue to provide aid and relief to distressed British nationals in dire need of assistance.
  • Partner with the British Consulates General in San Francisco and Los Angeles to ensure people know where to find us.
  • Follow the tradition that began in 1858 to help those that need it the most.
