The Orphans’ Aid Society  (OAS) was established in 1992 as a New York State, not-for-profit corporation.  OAS was founded by Mrs. Mary Jowyk and several dedicated friends and volunteers from Flushing Meadows, N.Y. Mrs. Jowyk continues to serve as President of the Society to this day. Because OAS is an all-volunteer organization, with no payroll costs, it allocates almost all of its receipts directly to charitable services. All stipends from sponsors go entirely to the orphans. Our nominal administrative costs are funded separately out of the generosity of OAS donors and supporters.

The society supports orphans and half orphans residing in caring, loving households throughout the 24 Ukrainian oblasts through a central office in Kyiv and 24 chapters. OAS has been granted 501(c)(3) IRS tax status making all contributions to the Society tax exempt and tax-deductible.
