Gifts of Stock
Silk Road Rising 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 contact Malik Gillani at 312-857-1234 ext 202, or at email@example.com.
