As a champion for women in the aviation industry, Women In Aviation, International (WAI) has helped provide education and
career advancements for women in this field for years. Now, it’s our turn to give back – we’re proud to help support the WAI
Endowment Fund so more and more young women can benefit from the many scholarships and development opportunities it
provides each year.
Supporting the Endowment Fund can come in many different forms and at various points in your life – a viable option is a Charitable
Remainder Trust (CRT), which enables you to provide a future gift to the WAI Endowment Fund. With a CRT you can make a donation
to a qualified charitable organization – while receiving income and tax benefits* until the trust is paid to the charity when you pass.
There are two types of charitable remainder trusts – a Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust (CRAT), and a Charitable Remainder
Unitrust (CRUT). A CRAT provides a fixed dollar amount annually, while a CRUT typically pays a fixed percentage of the trust’s value
annually. This means with a CRUT, you may receive more or less each year, depending on the annual value of the trust. Overall, both
options allow you to supplement your income and receive tax benefits while supporting a worthy cause.
SkyOne Federal Credit Union is a long-time supporter of WAI and we’re
committed to enriching this great charitable cause for the future of Women in
Aviation. Please talk to our CFS** financial advisor to learn more about how you
can set up a charitable remainder trust.
