Alliance Stamp Ministry

Looking for a simple project for your family, home school support group, or church? Then consider saving your used/cancelled stamps from letters and mailings you receive. When you have enough to fill an envelope or box, send them to Alliance Stamp Ministry, 15000 Shell Point Blvd., Ft. Myers, FL 33908. These stamps are then sold to stamp dealers and the money received is sent to Christian and Missionary Alliance Latin America where it’s used to develop and print Sunday school curriculum for Spanish speaking churches.


Here are a few simple instructions for saving the stamps:

·        Carefully trim the stamps from the envelopes leaving a ¼” border around them.

·        Do not soak the stamps off the paper.

·        Do not bundle the stamps with paper clips, rubber bands, or saran wrap.

·        U.S. and foreign stamps are accepted.

·        Do not send metered postage or pre-printed stamps on envelopes.


If you desire to receive acknowledgement of your stamps, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope
