Imagine treating cancer, Parkinson's disease, and brain tumors without surgery or the harmful effects of radiation. Focused ultrasound offers this potential. Unfortunately, it can take decades for new therapeutic technologies to become widely available. Do you want to wait? Neither do we.

- Donating stock directly to a charity is highly tax efficient, since – if you donate assets directly to a charity – there is no capital gains tax to pay.
- The federal capital gains rate is currently 20%, but many states have significant additional taxes on gains ranging from 5.25% in North Carolina to 13.3% in California.
- By donating stock that has been held for more than one year, you can deduct the full fair-market value of the assets without owing capital gains tax, up to the amount allowed by the IRS and the relevant state tax authorities. Effectively, you can give 20+% more net than by simply donating cash for the simple reason that you avoid the long-term capital gains taxes.
Always consult with your tax advisor for specific tax information when giving securities, as certain limitations to deductions may apply.
