Eastern Star Charities
Eastern Star Chapters donate funds to a wide variety of worthy charities. Some examples are: Cancer Research Project, Arthritis Fund, Heart Fund, Knights Templar, Eye Foundation, Shriners' Hospital for Crippled Children, Scholarships, orphanages and many other charities within each Grand Jurisdiction. In the United States alone, Masonic organizations give $1.5 million a day to charity.
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.
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. The New Jersey Eastern Star Home is located in Somerville, NJ.
