“In the United States alone, Masonic organizations give $1.5 million a day to charity. Everyday worldwide OES members give their time and loving kindness in their communities.”
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.
Eastern Star gives support to young people who are members of Rainbow for Girls, Job’s Daughters, and the Order of DeMolay.

The Order of the Eastern Star and the Masonic fraternity are highly rewarded by their support of and interest in these youth organizations.
