Stamp Collection for Charity

Guidelines for Stamp Collection and Charity

Collecting stamps and then selling them later on for a profit is a common practice used by charities all over the world to generate a considerable amount of cash to use for whatever purposes they wish. Have a charity and are interested in using this fund-raising method, there are a few important things that you should keep in mind so that you can maximize your income.
First of all, you have to understood that raising funds through stamp collection will only work if you have huge quantities of stamps to work with in the first place. If you just receive a handful of stamps from occasional donors, the measly profits you will get will probably not be worth your time and effort. Most stamp buyers buy stamps per kilo so you should be ready to collect stamps by the thousands if you want your fund-raising efforts to pay off.

In order to get the best price from stamp buyers, the stamps that you collect should still be attached to the backing paper, with about half a centimeter of paper margin all around the edges of the stamp, no more, no less. It would also be good if you can sort the stamps in some way, like according to the country of origin.

The more supporters your charity has, the more stamps you can collect, so do try to advertise your fund-raiser to as many people as possible. If you have contacts in other countries, it would be good to encourage them to collect stamps for you as well, since this would bring in rarer pieces that may be worth a higher price for collectors.

Most people automatically throw away the envelopes when they receive postal mail, not realizing that the stamps stuck onto these envelopes can actually be used for a good purpose. Of course, if you are a stamp collector, you will be loath to throw away the stamped envelopes, at least not until you have checked the value of the stamp attached to it. But even if you don't collect stamps for a hobby, you may still want to hold on to these stamps because you can give them to charities that sell these stamps to raise funds.

If you live in the United Kingdom, there are many charities that accept stamp donations, which they will sell to earn money for helping with relief efforts, as well as for assisting people with special health needs, and so on.
