The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which men and women may belong. It encircles the earth with over 10,000 Chapters in the United States, Canada and 18 other countries. Though its teachings are based on the Holy Bible, the Order of the Eastern Star espouses no religion, and is neither secret nor political. Its members are comprised of men who are Master Masons and women with specific Masonic relationships.
Millions of dollars are raised annually within its membership for numerous projects which benefit mankind. Many national and local charities are among the projects supported by its members. Through this fraternal service to humanity, its members strive to build a better, more fulfilling way of life for all.
