Welcome to the Charitable Trusts Unit

In 1943, New Hampshire became the first state to create an office dedicated to the oversight of charitable trusts and organizations. Today the mission of the Charitable Trusts Unit (CTU) is to protect the public's interest in the organizations and assets committed to charitable purposes in New Hampshire. We do this through effective registration, education and enforcement.
