Leave a Legacy

Bequests

A bequest can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific asset(s) given to American Friends of ALYN Hospital in support of its various programs and endeavors after your lifetime. A bequest may also be a gift of the remaining assets of your estate.

 

Bequests leave a legacy by providing life-changing treatment to children for years to come. They may also reduce or eliminate the estate tax. Make a gift through a will, trust or retirement plan while maintaining control during your lifetime.

 

Charitable gift annuity

The charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a simple agreement between you and American Friends of ALYN Hospital and provides you with guaranteed income for life. You donate cash, stock, or real estate directly to the American Friends of ALYN Hospital in return for a promise to pay a fixed amount to you during your lifetime. The payout rate is determined based on your age at the time of the gift and when payments are to begin. The older the beneficiary, the higher the rate.

 

The payments are fixed and backed by the general assets of American Friends of ALYN Hospital. CGAs begin at $5,000 and may be funded, in some instances, with appreciated assets. The rate is proposed with the intention that this charity will retain approximately 50 percent of the donor’s original gift. Payments are usually made on an annual, quarterly or monthly basis.
