You can avoid capital gains taxes and help save lives by giving gifts of appreciated stock. For instance, if you bought a stock more than one year ago you can transfer the stock to Medical Teams and potentially avoid capital gains taxes that you would likely incur if you sold the stock instead. We recommend that you speak with your financial adviser about how to give a gift of stock to Medical Teams International.
