YES Program

The Youth Education thru Stamps (YES) program opens the eyes and minds of thousands of children and adults via beautiful and informative artwork on stamps. We do this through stamps, lessons, learning activities, field trips, merit badge services, and more. Art, civics, math, language, culture, science, and history can connect with visual, tangible postage stamps.

Philatelic sales

Stamp collecting and philately is the bedrock of our Foundation. We want to keep the hobby of stamp collecting alive! Our philatelic sales department not only provides stamps, albums, covers, & tools to budding and advanced collector needs, all the proceeds from their sales help us continue in our work.

Slusser Library

The Slusser Library has in its collection over 32,000 titles that include books, journals, archival collections, cultural objects, maps, auction catalogs, ephemera, and other philatelic resources. We’re dedicated to the preservation and access of postal history and research materials.
