About ONYA

Our Mission

The mission of ONYA is to inspire and advance philanthropy that funds non-profit programs to foster personal growth and economic self-sufficiency among women and girls throughout Ontario and Yates Counties.

How ONYA’s Mission is realized:


  •  By awarding grants to agencies and organizations for programs which address education, intervention, legal assistance and other relevant solutions.

  • By creating awareness through specific programs within the communities we serve.

  • By mentoring girls through specialized events such as “Voices of Experience”.

  • By building an endowment to fund grants and awareness efforts.

At ONYA, Ontario/Yates Fund for Women and Girls, we are committed to help women and girls become independent and self-sufficient. Explore our website to learn more about all that we’re doing to make a change.


We are a non-profit 501(c)(3 )organization dedicated to raising funds for programs that meet this mission.
