"Charity Stamps Direct"

[We have a separate service for charities who collect, trim, and tidy their stamps before selling them to us. Please see our Kiloware Advice page for details of this.] 
Charity Stamp Collecting Frequently Asked Questions

We operate in several different ways, and can help you in various manners.
If you are a charity interested in collecting stamps (possibly also coins, banknotes, postcards) that you intend to sell to us, follow this link. This involves you in the work of collection, tidying, and probably sorting, before selling direct to us.
If you are a member of the public looking for a charity to which you can donate stamps, you can either look at our list of charities that welcome donations directly to them, or you can send them direct to us through our Charity Stamps Direct scheme. (See list below.)
[People often look for details of how to give stamps to Guide Dogs; they no longer collect stamps - see their website.]
If you are a charity interested in taking part in our "Charity Stamps Direct" scheme, follow this link. This means that you can do next to nothing (apart from giving us your details) and probably get some income, or you can do more work in encouraging your supporters to send material directly to us, which will increase your income.
Charities currently participating in the "Charity Stamps Direct" scheme are;
Barn Owl Trust, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Cancer Research UK (Edin. S.Clerk St. Shop), Child Bereavement Charity, Exodus for Romania, Foxton Inclined Plane Trust, Friends of Rodborough School, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, Islamic Aid, Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care (Edinburgh Hospice), The Mission to Seafarers, Monkstown Baptist Church, Nurses Christian Fellowship, RAF Benevolent Fund, SASBAH (Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus), Somerset and Dorset Railway Heritage Trust, and the Tibetan Education & Relief Association.
If you are a charity that collects stamps to raise funds, and you would like to be included in our list of such charities, give us your details so that you can be included. You can be listed whether or not you sell your stamps to us.
If you are a collector or dealer interested in buying kiloware from us, please follow this link to our general price list.
