Define: Pooled Income Fund
A pooled income fund is a trust that is established and maintained by a public charity and which receives contributions from individual donors that are commingled for investment purposes within the fund. Each donor is assigned "units of participation" in the fund that are based on the relationship of their contribution to the overall value of the fund at the time of contribution. Each year, the fund's entire net investment income is distributed to fund participants according to their units of participation. Income distributions are made to each participant for their lifetime; after which, the portion of the fund assets attributable to the participant is severed from the fund and used by the charity for its charitable purposes.
