Here are some basic guidelines to follow when writing about the Otto Bremer Trust.
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.”
The Otto Bremer Trust is a private charitable trust based in Saint Paul, Minn. Created in 1944 by business and community leader Otto Bremer, it is committed to supporting a better quality of life for residents of Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Since its founding, OBT has invested more than $1 billion in people, places, and opportunities in its region. Visit ottobremer.org.
