A charitable remainder unitrust is like a combination of a gift and an investment plan. You place assets in a trust, and you (and/or another beneficiary) receive lifetime income from them—with Girl Scouts receiving the remainder.

How It Works

You transfer cash, securities, or other appreciated property into a trust. The required minimum for this type of gift is $100,000. The trust pays a percentage of the value of its principal, which is valued annually, to you or beneficiaries you name. When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to Girl Scouts River Valleys to be used as you have directed.
