The Otto Bremer Trust: Investing in People, Places and Opportunities in the Upper Midwest.

Our mission is based on the intent of our founder, Otto Bremer. His vision and longstanding commitment to communities during and after the Great Depression endure today through our investments in the places that are home to Bremer banks. We strive to make measurable and meaningful impact for positive change in communities throughout Minnesota, North Dakota and western Wisconsin.

In the spirit of Otto Bremer’s intentions, we are open to a variety of requests while giving highest priority to opportunities with the potential to move a community forward in meaningful, powerful and broad-based ways. We respect the remarkable resiliency and strength of Bremer communities and understand that each community has its own vision, its own ways of solving problems and building on opportunities. We are interested in supporting the communities’ efforts to move toward their visions when those efforts are consistent with OBT’s mission.
