ALL ABOUT 'DONATIONS'
The Mesa Stamp Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization filed with the Federal Government under the 501(c)7 tax code for social clubs.
While our club may engage in a number of activities, some of which may generate operating funds, the primary purpose is for social gatherings, sharing common interests, and learning/teaching to name a few.
The most important point is that "donations" in any of their many forms can never be tax deducted. Such forms may include cash, material goods, merchandise, services, and so on.
While donations to our club can not be tax deductible, that doesn't preclude donating items to the club to help support it. From time to time we may need a non-philatelic item that would help the club in providing interesting opportunities. For example, we've had members donate - for club use, a portable projection screen and books to loan out. amongst other items. Very often members will also donate philatelic items for sale at our monthly auction. Such items have included: stamps, stamp supplies, catalogs, albums, memorabilia, and even metal rulers, storage boxes, magnifying glasses and brief cases!
Thank you for your continued support!
At this time we don't have any specific needs which we'd list here. Please continue donating items for sale at the monthly auctions!
