Pooled income fund

A pooled income fund is a type of charitable mutual fund created from securities or cash donated by an individual, a family or a corporation to a charity, which is then invested to provide dividends for both the donor and charity. The donations are irrevocable and tax-deductible and must be from personal assets. Capital gains taxes do not apply to securities donated to such a fund.

After a donor dies, the balance of their donation is given to a pre-determined qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization (or several organizations). Charities typically manage their own pooled income fund, and fund their operations through the donated securities.
