Pooled Income Fund
How it works
You transfer cash or securities to the pooled income fund.
The trust issues you units, like a mutual fund, and pays you, or up to two income beneficiaries you name, the annual income attributable to your units for life.
The principal attributed to your units passes to the University of Pittsburgh when the last income beneficiary dies.
- You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your gift to the trust.
- You pay no capital gains tax on any appreciated assets you donate.
- Income can exceed dividends you were receiving on the securities you donated.
- You have the satisfaction of making a gift that benefits you now and the University of Pittsburgh later.
