    Flag Day – Commemoration of the anniversary of the raising of the Bear Flag over Sonoma on June 14, 1846.

    Charities – Support for all charities, especially the Native Sons of the Golden West Charitable Foundation which assists hospitals who help children born with cleft palates and other craniofacial anomalies.

    Scholarships – A scholarship program designed for members of the Order and their family is currently being developed. For many decades, the Native Sons sponsored a public speaking contest for high school seniors. Now, in an effort to address the needs of a wider scope of California students, it is in the process of replacing that contest with a scholarship program for graduating high school students.
