OES Service Dogs – As the primary and identifying charity, the Order of the Eastern Star advocates for qualified Service Dog programs and provides financial assistance to such organizations, aiding their efforts to serve mankind and to allow individuals to achieve independence.

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 their 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
