Become a Patron!
Patronage is a very old tradition in Gaelic Culture. Supporting artists, bards, musicians, and others was considered a community responsibility. Through a monthly donation in an amount of your choosing, you are continuing a centuries old tradition. Patrons will receive full membership privileges and be given the option of being publicly thanked on our website. To become a Patron, please click on the link below.

The general public, as well as regional, provincial, and federal governments, need to know why Gaelic should be supported. You can help Comhairle na Gàidhlig in its pursuits by writing letters of support and encouragement to our government leaders, and by expressing your opinion in a letter to the editor. If you know about a Gaelic event taking place in your community, ask local media outlets if they plan to attend. Letting them know interest exists in the community can result in increased coverage. If the event is not featured in any articles or interviews, write a letter to the editor or call a talk-back line and highlight its success. This can create more awareness in the community and might convince the media to come next time.
