Merrimack Valley YMCA's pooled income fund is a special charitable fund. You can make a gift to our pooled income fund and receive tax and income benefits in return.

Flowchart: Donor transfers stock or cash to a pooled income fund. The donor receives payouts from the pooled income fund and the MVYMCA receives the remainder.

Benefits of a pooled income fund

How a pooled income fund works

  1. You transfer cash or property to Merrimack Valley YMCA's pooled income fund.
  2. Your gift is "pooled" together and invested with the gifts of other donors.
  3. You receive a charitable income tax deduction for your gift to us.
  4. You enjoy annual payments for life based on the value of the pool's assets and your share in the fund.
  5. You also receive satisfaction knowing that you will be helping further our mission.
