The tax benefits you receive depend on the assets you use to make a current gift. These include:

  1. Cash. When you make a gift of cash, you receive an income tax deduction. Cash gifts provide us with the financial means to respond to our most pressing needs.
  2. Stocks and bonds. By donating appreciated securities to the MedEvac Foundation International that you have held longer than one year, you completely eliminate the capital gains tax. Plus, you receive a federal income tax charitable deduction.
  3. Real estate. If you give real estate or land, you receive an income tax charitable deduction, eliminate long-term capital gains tax and reduce possible future estate taxes. You also avoid the hassle of selling or maintaining the property.
  4. Art or other personal property. These gifts provide you with an immediate income tax deduction, plus capital gains tax savings.
