The Order of the Eastern Star is the world's largest fraternal organization to which men and women may both belong. There are over one million members of the order worldwide who fall under the governance of the General Grand Chapter. As a Fraternal and benevolent organization the Order of the Eastern Star is involved in several charity projects adding to the nearly 1.5 million dollars given daily by Masonic charities. Some of the projects the O.E.S. are involved in are as follows: Youth Projects: Eastern Star gives support to young people who are members of Rainbow for Girls, Job's Daughters, and the Order of DeMolay These fine young people who are training themselves to be leaders are likely prospects to become valued Eastern Stars or Masons. The Order of the Eastern Star and the Masonic fraternity are highly rewarded by their support of and interest in these youth organizations. ESTARL:( (Eastern Star Training Awards for Religious Leadership), is a scholarship fund for those who are going to school for the purpose of religious training. Each state administers its own ESTARL program. Those wishing to apply for an ESTARL Scholarship should contact the Grand Secretary of the state or province in which they reside. Eastern Star Homes: Many Grand Jurisdictions have homes for their senior members. These homes range in function from full-fledged "retirement homes" to organizations that provide services to those who are in need.
