“THEY PROMISED TO DEFEND. WE PROMISE TO SUPPORT.” They’ve done their duty, and now it’s time for us to do the same. But, we need your help. This is not about you. It’s not about me. It’s not about PR. It’s not about money. It’s about NEED.

But, we need your help. This is not about you. It’s not about me. It’s not about PR. It’s not about money. It’s about NEED.

Your donations and the support we receive from the sale of hats,gear and products are the engines that fund our work for veterans — putting over $3.0 million in the hands of veterans organizations that then disburse funds to those most in need. OHT is changing one life at a time.

How OHT differs from other veteran focused 501c3’s:

  • Many Americans express support for our nation’s military and veterans, but not everyone converts those sentiments into action. That’s the beauty of OHT – supporting the cause is as simple as making a purchase.

  • OHT fills a critical financing gap that exists between conventional organizations and government programs that don’t cover (and/or can’t quickly meet) a wide range of personal needs that help vets, yet regularly fall through the cracks.

  • Dot rallied around a different operating model in forming OHT: be a “pass-through” 501c3 that funds carefully selected (typically) smaller military support organizations – compatible with OHT’s mission. The organization works with dozens of its college and university partners to identify worthy organizations in their own communities.

  • The organization is transparent and lean. A decade since its founding (2018 is OHT’s 10-year anniversary), Dot remains the only employee. She believes in OHT so much she retired from the University of New Hampshire in 2016 to focus 100% on the cause. Hundreds of volunteers and an actively engaged Board of Directors help spark the cause.

  • OHT pioneered the first national philanthropic co-branded cause marketing retail apparel licensing program in conjunction with America’s colleges and universities. Hats and gear feature the college logo in addition to the OHT brand. A royalty paid by the manufacturer for the sale of each OHT product generates the revenue stream OHT uses to fund carefully selected organizations that fulfill the OHT mission.
