Hugh O’Brian Legacy Fund

Hugh OBrian Legacy Fund LogoNearly 60 years ago, after an inspirational nine day visit with Dr. Albert Schweitzer, legendary actor Hugh O’Brian created HOBY.  Hugh dedicated his life to the vision of a world in which young leaders make a difference in the lives of others through leadership, service and innovation.  As of summer of 2014, Hugh and HOBY have inspired over 435,000 young leaders and each year, we welcome more than 10,000 new Ambassadors into the HOBY family.  The Hugh O’Brian Legacy Fund is our chance to honor Hugh for all he has given while providing resources to sustain his greatest legacy: HOBY.  In Hugh’s own words “I believe every person is created as the steward of his or her own destiny with great power for a specific purpose, to share with others, through service, a reverence for life in a spirit of love.” Together, we will inspire future generations with the ideas and work of Hugh O’Brian while funding scholarships for youth who otherwise could not attend HOBY programs.
