Legacy Planning



ALYN Hospital opened in 1932 to support children with orthopedic disabilities in Jerusalem. ALYN has grown into a unique medical facility and global leader in pediatric rehabilitation for children with physical disabilities, regardless of religious or ethnic background. ALYN offers a multidisciplinary, holistic approach to rehabilitation, and is on the cutting edge of assistive technology development to benefit children. Medical facilities, research institutions and technology companies throughout the world seek partnerships with ALYN to create meaningful advances in the field.

A planned gift from your estate to the American Friends of ALYN Hospital will ensure the long-term financial well-being of ALYN so that the hospital can continue to provide best-in-class therapies and remain on the forefront of technology-based solutions.


Leave a legacy through a bequest. A bequest can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific asset given to American Friends of ALYN Hospital after your lifetime. A bequest can help to reduce or eliminate the estate tax. A gift can be made through a will, trust or retirement plan.

You can also name ALYN Hospital as your designated beneficiary, meaning you can designate ALYN Hospital to receive the balance of an IRA, annuity, life insurance policy, donor advised fund or retirement account after your passing. To do so, you simply need to contact your plan administrator and request a change-of-beneficiary form.


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 $10,000 and can be funded, in some instances, with appreciated assets. The rate is proposed with the intention that this charity will retain approximately 50% of the donor’s original gift. Payments are usually made on an annual, quarterly or monthly basis.


As a show of gratitude for leaving ALYN a bequest in your will, we award immediate recognition by means of placing a leaf on our symbolic Tree of Life. Planting a tree is a symbol of planning for future growth. What a wonderful opportunity to plant for future generations of ALYN children.
