Foundation Welcome

Welcome to the California Eastern Star Foundation!

Our Vision:  Guided by the principles of our Order, we enable our members to band together to make a difference in each other’s lives and in our communities.

Our Mission:  Our mission is to maximize our ability to make a difference for our members and our communities.

To fulfill our Mission, we accept gifts, bequests and contributions to further our educational, charitable and scientific purposes.

So what does this mean to you?  The Foundation houses a number of funds that are available to assist you, as a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, and the members of your family.  We also house a number of funds meant to make a difference in our Community.  We are seeking donations and bequests to benefit these funds to expand our ability to help our members, their families and our communities.

Under each of the titles in our pull out menu, you will find information on the assistance available from each of our funds, eligibility requirements, applications and the opportunity to donate to these very important funds.  If you are not in need of assistance, please take a look at funds for causes that may be important to you for possible donations and bequests.  We cannot help our members without your help and support.

Information on short term financial assistance for unexpected one-time expenses can be found under Benevolent Assistance.  For members and their families struggling with cancer, and those that want to help them, please check out our Cancer Assistance page.  If you would like to help medical research find new answers and treatments, please take a look at our Research Funds.  And if you are looking to further your education, or want to help others with theirs, please go to our Scholarships page.

Thank you for visiting the Eastern Star Foundation.  The Foundation Board of Trustees looks forward to assisting you, and thanks you for your contributions.
