The Robert Burns World Federation is a literary society based in Kilmarnock. Founded in 1885 and aimed at educating the public about the life, poetry and works of Robert Burns, the Federation links existing Burns Clubs and similar groups, giving a unique number to affiliated Clubs, which is then used by them in their promotion and identification. Their ongoing intent is to provide a way for clubs to link together and enjoy the mutual benefit of association, communication and shared mission. 


Robert Burns Association of North America is dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of the life, works and philosophy of Scotland’s National Bard – Robert Burns, and to promote Scottish culture and heritage in North America. RBANA is also affiliated with the Robert Burns World Federation.
