How It Works

/images/upload/1-gift.gifYou transfer cash or securities to the Pooled Income Fund trust established by RTS.
/images/upload/2-gift.gifThe 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.
/images/upload/3-gift.gifThe principal attributed to your units passes to RTSwhen the last income beneficiary passes on.


  • 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.
  • Although modest, the income usually exceeds the level of stock dividends.
  • You can have the satisfaction of making a gift that benefits you now and RTS later.
