Send used stamps to support Right Sharing of World Resources

Since 1996, the Quaker Missions Stamp Project has collected and sold used postage stamps and used the proceeds to fund Quaker organizations. Currently, Right Sharing of World Resources (RSWR) is the sole recipient. RSWR is an independent Quaker not-for-profit organization pursuing the abundance of God’s love through wealth redistribution. RSWR funds micro-enterprise projects with marginalized women in Kenya, India, and Sierra Leone.

Send in your stamps!

The stamp project is happy to accept used stamps of many types from all over the world. Please note that while in the past we have accepted and sold collectibles in addition to stamps, we are now only able to process and sell stamps. In order for the stamps to be salable, please follow these guidelines:

US stamps:

Cut or carefully tear the corner bearing the stamp(s) from the body of the envelope. If more than one stamp has been used for postage, remove the stamps as a group on the paper (do not remove separately). Leave a border of 1/8-1/4 inch around the stamp or group of stamps.

Especially desirable are:

– Harry Potter or other popular culture stamps (television, movies, singers, comic books, etc.)
– Stamps bearing values greater than 50 cents
– Zazzle and personalized stamps

Please do not send USA flag stamps, USA nonprofit stamps, or USA stamps from mail sent before 2000. These cannot be profitably sold.

Foreign stamps:

If the envelope is intact, send the complete envelope, Otherwise, cut or carefully tear the corner bearing the stamp or group of stamps, leaving a 1/8-1/4 inch border.

Mailing address:

In 2017, Indianapolis First Friends Meeting became the new home for the stamp ministry.
