REFERENCING OBT

When referencing OBT, it is important to use the full name of our organization: the Otto Bremer Trust. (While the word “the” is not part of our official name, we use it when referencing OBT.)
It may also be helpful to include that we are based in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is also acceptable on second and subsequent references to abbreviate the organization as “OBT.”
