A Letter from the OHHF Board of Directors

December 31, 2015

Dear Friends,
As we begin a new year, the Obie Harrington-Howes Foundation is enormously grateful for all the support you have given the Foundation over the years. For nearly two decades the generosity of our donors has enabled the OHHF to help individuals living with spinal cord injuries and their families move forward in their lives.

Early this past fall, the Board of Directors of the Obie Harrington-Howes Foundation met to address the future of the organization. Following those discussions, we are announcing that the Foundation is closing and will no longer be soliciting funds or accepting new grant requests as of December 31, 2015.

The Grants Committee will continue its work through 2016 to complete the grant requests currently on file. At the end of the year any funds remaining will be distributed to one or more charitable organizations that match our mission to support quality-of-life assistance for individuals with spinal cord injuries.

OHHF and its loyal donors have shared in such a rich and effective outreach. Whether with wheelchairs, specialized computer equipment, a customized van or home renovations, OHHF donors have opened doors of possibility for our grantees, helping them maintain and improve the quality of their lives.

Please share with us the sense of reward and accomplishment that our combined efforts have made possible. Know also that your generosity has made a huge difference in the lives of all who have been associated with the Obie Harrington-Howes Foundation.

The Obie Harrington-Howes Foundation Board of Directors
