Stamps For Missions

Stamps for Missions

The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League NID invites you to save postage stamps – especially during the holiday season and donate them for our mission goal.

Since 1997 Lutheran Women in Mission across the Northern Illinois District have been clipping, sorting and sending in cancelled postage stamps.

You can, too. Just send your trimmed cancelled postage stamps to us or bring them to any LWML NID event. Then, we sort and sell them in batches to collectors and dealers at stamp shows and club auctions. 100% of the funds received goes towards our mission goal for the biennium.

  • Stamps should be cut off envelopes leaving a 1/4 inch edge around the stamps.
  • Flag and Bell stamps should not be saved.
  • Postcards are welcome. Please save the whole card. Do not just send the stamp. Cutting the stamp off postcards makes them lose their value.
  • Stamps in albums, foreign and commemorative stamps are especially welcome.
  • Bring stamps to district events.


Non-LWML’ers and/or “savers” outside Northern Illinois, please send stamps to:

2301 South Wolf Road
Hillside, IL 60162

Thank you for helping!
