Gifts of Stock

Donating appreciated stock is one of the most impactful and tax-advantaged ways to express your generosity.

Silk Road Cultural Center is grateful to partner with the United Methodist Foundation of the Northern

Illinois Conference to facilitate gifts of stock. Since 2017 the Foundation has expedited gifts of nearly one million dollars of appreciated stock at no additional cost to donors, churches, and non-profit organizations.

You can donate stock to the Foundation, which will transfer the proceeds to Silk Road Rising. By donating appreciated securities, you bypass the capital gains tax and are able to itemize your gift as a deduction.

If you are interested in donating appreciated stock, please call Malik Gillani at 312-857-1234 ext 202, or email at
