The Elderhostel Pooled Income Fund



The Elderhostel Pooled Income Fund is exactly what it sounds like. Donors’ contributions are “pooled” into a fund that is invested to benefit the income beneficiaries and Elderhostel. Contributors, or their designated beneficiaries, receive quarterly income payments based on their share of the total pool.

The Fund is invested to produce a balance of income and growth in assets. This provides a potential for growth in income over time. The amount of income distributed to income beneficiaries depends on the portfolio earnings and varies from year to year.

For as little as $5,000 you can make a special gift to Elderhostel, benefit from a large charitable contribution deduction, and receive lifetime income for yourself, a relative or friend. Each gift to the Fund can benefit one of two income beneficiaries.
