No. Regardless of your relationship, and simply put, if the sales price (less selling expenses) is greater than your adjusted basis, you will have a capital gain.

But will they only have to pay cap gains on the difference of the actual amount of cash they receive?

i.e. why would you have to pay capital gains on the gift of equity you are giving?
