DONATING STAMPS TO ARIE Foundation
Donors may deduct the
fair market value of their gift as a charitable contribution on their income tax return. For tax purposes, fair market value
is defined as “the price a collector would pay if buying the material for his or her own collection”—not
the price a dealer might offer if buying the material for resale.
Donors must consult their own tax advisor for the specific rules for charitable contributions.
Please note when Donating Stamps:
We welcome all stamps on or off paper as long as the stamp is not damaged.
If possible, stamps on paper should have no more than 5mm of single thickness border around them.
Less than this is acceptable but please do not trim them so close that the
perforations are damaged.
Please avoid double thickness paper
front and back faces of the envelope).
Damaged stamps are worthless.
Soaking stamps off their backing
can obviously save on your postage costs.
Please do not mix off-paper stamps
with those still on their backing.
