ONN Connectors

Supporting a strong sector

ONN Connectors are organizations, foundations, corporations, and individuals that believe in building a strong, vibrant nonprofit sector in Ontario.

For over ten years, ONN has been working for and with Ontario’s nonprofits and charities. The vital, collective hub of the nonprofit sector, ONN leads in the areas of policy, advocacy, and identifying shared opportunities and trends.

ONN Connectors understand that policy and systems change takes time, energy, and resources. They believe that public benefit organizations are stronger together, and see the critical importance and value of connecting the dots between the nonprofit sector, government, and the private sector.
