Pooled Income Fund

Join Others in Support of Memorial Sloan Kettering

A pooled income fund consists of gifts from multiple donors that are combined into a trust and invested for the benefit of all donors and ultimately MSK. You and/or your beneficiaries receive a proportional share of the fund's annual income for life, while also enjoying the benefits that come with being a member of the Cullum Society. At the death of the last income beneficiary, the principal of your gift will be used by the Center. With this type of gift you can:

  • Receive a source of income for life.
  • Receive an income tax charitable deduction for a portion of your gift's value, depending on your tax situation.
  • Provide long-term support for cancer research and care.



  1. Pooled income funds require an initial gift of $10,000 or more.
  2. Up to two people, both at least 60 years of age, may receive lifetime payments.
  3. You may add to the fund at any time in amounts of $1,000 or more.
