Programs to Support
For the Future - Campaign for Philately

The Campaign for Philately is the banner under which the APS and APRL jointly conduct fundraising activities. Your donation helps make the American Philatelic Society and American Philatelic Research Library serve the needs of the current members, supports development of new collectors, and enables promotion of the hobby.

APS and APRL operations are funded by dues and service fees. Unless designated otherwise, all gifts help the Society and Library do more than provided for by the budget. Unrestricted donations give us the ability to use the funds where most needed, and are used to meet strategic priorities.

Strategic Priorities

In concordance with our Long Range Plan, Into the Future, the organization’s boards are currently focusing on using donations in three main areas:


Library Completion

Debt Reduction
