Default where to donate stamps and dies

As most of you, when I initially got into stamping I went hog-wild buying stamps and dies. Now I have too many and a lot of them I don't use or probably never will. Is there any place in the US to donate them? Thanks.

It is so nice of you to want to donate your stamps and supplies.

I donate mine to my local Boys & Girls Club. They can sell them in their thrift store or use them for arts & crafts with the kids. They take all kinds of things and they pick up donations from my house, which is helpful.

Perhaps a preschool, nursing home, school, or after-school program would like some.

Thanks. That's a good idea. I have figured that stamps might not be a problem but one would need the machine for the die cutting. But like you said, an organization could sell them to make money.

I donated a ton of crafting supplies, along with my original Cuttlebug die cutting machine, to an assisted living home, and some supplies went to the Yellow Ribbon Girls who made packages to send overseas (they made cards for the military). And, as mentioned, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts appreciate donated items as well, and some churches will take them for Sunday school or Bible School classes.

I have given them to the goodwill here and they get excited, they know they can sell them but, I do like the idea of giving them to a place where the members can use them like a senior center. (maybe call around and see if they are accepting donations during the pandemic?)

I have taken mine to the local hospitals thrift store and they are always thrilled to get them. They have personnel in charge of different departments who are familiar with the products and know how to price them and display them for optimum sales. All sales benefit the hospital.

I would feel remiss if I did not point out you could sell them here. We have a buy/sell thread.

There is also a thread called Pay it Forward (PIF) where members give away stuff to each other here.

Having said that,
The only problem I can foresee with donating dies is if you don't have a machine to run them.
So if the place can sell them...that's great!

I have bought off the website for Goodwill in the past myself. And I have seen supplies at local charity stores.

I saw a post somewhere - maybe it was here - that someone donated their stamps to their local library. I think that's a great idea - people could check them out like a book. It would be great for those who can't afford to buy them.

My daughter teaches card making at her middle school. They love to get supplies! And middle schoolers aren’t picky.

Several years ago I took a large load of supplies (old die cutting machines, dies, stamps, paper, ink, etc.) to the local Children's Hospital. I called ahead to make arrangements, and they were happy to have them all.

We had extracurricular activities built into the end of the Friday school day. I hosted cardmaking for fourth and fifth grade students. It became so popular that we had to put a limit on students attending. Students came up with incredible designs and cards. They were so proud of their work. Those receiving the cards were always so appreciative!

I donated stamps, papers, dies etc. to a local thrift shop where the money goes to the County Animal Shelter.

In Kansas City, Kansas is a store called ScrapsKC which is a local Resource Center. They employ the homeless and volunteer groups to clean and sort products donated to them from businesses all over the region that can be reused rather than going to the landfill. Teachers and artists love the place and I myself have purchased paper, rubber stamps, stencils, pieces of leather, fabric there, etc.
They also hold classes there, crafty birthday parties, etc. where they use the products from the store. Perhaps there is a Resource Center near you?
Similar to this, our local children's museum had a resource center in their museum where they sold donated arts and crafts supplies to help fund their museum. When I was setting up our church's Resource Room in our Educational Dept., we were blessed with an overwhelming amount of material for it and I shared some with them that I couldn't find room to put away. Thank you all for your generous hearts, willing to share with others. You are a blessing!

I've donated some to our local Christian school and to the public school, but I also take much of my unused crafting stuff to our church store [Bethesda]. All are very happy to receive it. Does that tell you how much I've gotten rid of? LOL And more to go!

I do not know where you are located, but in Roseville California we have a non-profit Thrift store called Re-Create which takes all crafting supplies. The funds from the sales of donated items helps to pay for school supplies for local school programs and art classes. Really neat place. I've not only donated, but found stuff I purchased as well.... haha! So much for cleaning out....

I'm living in Canada and we have the Ronald McDonald homes/charity, where families can stay while a member needs medical treatment. Crafting supplies are always appreciated at these locations.

I volunteer at my local Senior Center here in Texas, and my ladies are mostly on Social Security. They don't have money for supplies, so I pay for materials out of my own pocket. So I encourage people to pass on their stamps, paper and so forth to the center (or mail to me so I can pass them on). One of the ladies here was kind enough to send me some paper I was searching for, which was used very gratefully.
If you would like to donate to the Killeen Community Senior Center (we are not a residential facility) just let me know!

I always appreciate information from Canada. Which is not to say that I don't avidly read (and appreciate) all the comments from fellow crafters who write in from everywhere! Three cheers for Splitcoaststampers, and a place I can access without using Facebook.

I donated an old Big Shot, stamps, dies inks and cardstock to the middle school art teacher. She rewards students who finish their work to make cards, pictures, etc. to take home. She said the kids love the supplies and making projects.

I have been wanting to ask if there is a place I could post on here to ask for donations, I want to start a program for kids. I want to teach them stamping, Cardmaking, journaling stuff like that. A place for them to learn or expand a talent. Something that might help keep some kids off the streets. Something that some kids can’t afford to do. I can’t afford to buy all new stuff, plus it’s probably better to teach them how to care for product before getting out the really good stuff.

I have stamps that I'd want to donate to you - message me with your address, or post it in this thread, so that I can mail them to you and you can get your program running! It's a great idea!

Thank you for sharing your story. You have my sympathy with the passing of your mom. That is difficult. It’s nice you have such good stamping memories with your mom, and how you both made made a difference by making cards for the cancer patients.

We have a resale shop in our area that uses all it's funds for hospice. Everyone who works there is a volunteer. I was a volunteer before Covid. It's a great organization!
I have donated a lot of stamping supplies over the years. If I don't use it in a year, I find I probably won't. Craft supplies seem to sell like hotcakes!
If you have anything like this in your area, I promise they will LOVE to get your donations!

I noticed that scrapbook.com still takes cards. They have a program called "Cards for Kindness" where they send cards to cancer centers, hospitals and all kinds of places.

Are you thinking of the same kind of "stamps" we are? Rubber stamps? Not philatelic ones?

I volunteer at our local Senior Center here in South Central Texas. There have been a few kind donors who have sent us stamps - usually trying to rid themselves of those space-hogging wood block stamps - and since I have lots of newbies that come through periodically, I bring my box of those donations, and they take what they think they can use. One lady took some stamps, and then ended up quarantined until she can get surgery, and another is a transplant patient and has to stay home if she gets the slightest sniffle - so she can work at home.
Seniors (that means age 50+) can really benefit from donations! Especially now.

I have made donations of scrapbook paper, stamps, & other supplies to the following:
  • A Nursing/Rehab facility where my Dad stayed for a week or so shortly before he passed away.
  • The local community center where my Mom participates in their Senior Program.
  • An elementary school for their art department.
