We are a fraternal and social order comprised of persons with deep religious convictions and spiritual values. Eastern Star is benevolent and Charitable in its actions.
We raise millions of dollars annually within our membership for numerous projects that benefit all mankind: ESTARL (Eastern Star Training Award for Religious Leadership), Scottish Rite Hospitals, Shriners' Hospitals for Crippled Children, Knights Templar Eye Foundation, Cancer Research, Heart Fund, Arthritis Fund, Service Dogs, etc., and many local charities are among the projects we support and fund.
We proudly sponsor and support the young women who are members of the Rainbow for Girls. We commend the Masons for their interest in sponsoring DeMolay for Boys.
Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both men and women may belong. Only men who are Masons are eligible and only women with specific Masonic affiliations may be members.
Being a member of the Order of the Eastern Star is a wonderful and fulfilling Way of Life. Through this fraternal service to humanity, we build a better life for all.
