The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both men and women may belong and through which members contribute time, energy, and talent to their local communities with charity truth and loving-kindness.
Generosity and charitable giving are distinguishing characteristics of the members of the Order of the Eastern Star. Special projects and fund raising events of the Order fund ESTARL religious leadership opportunities to assist college and seminary students, fund grants for cancer research and cancer patient assistance, provide donations to the Ohio Heart Association and the Masonic Children's Learning Centers, and support youth scholarship programs for the Order of Rainbow for Girls, Job's Daughters, and the Order of DeMolay. In addition, members of the Order of the Eastern Star make generous contributions to the Shriner's hospitals for Crippled Children and the Knights Templar Eye Foundation.
All Eastern Star members are sincerely encouraged to attend the 128th Grand Chapter Session of the Ohio Order of the Eastern Star.
