Used Stamp Program

Wondering what to do with your used stamps? The Canadian Bible Society collects donations of used stamps. 

Here's how our Used Stamp Program works:

  • Stamps collected from donations across Canada are combined to create charity boxes and are sold to stamp collectors and vendors.
  • The revenue generated from the stamps allow CBS to purchase Bibles for Canadian prison ministry.
  • 10 lbs of stamps = approx 5 Bibles for distribution

Instructions for collecting

  • Keep the stamp on the envelope
  • Cut out the stamp leaving a 1/4 inch border around the entire stamp
  • Collect stamps on white or light coloured envelopes and not on industrial brown envelopes
  • Ask your church congregation to collect their stamps
  • Make a box as a collecton vestibule
  • Ask to put an announcement in the bulletin about the program and to let them know how to collect and where the drop off location is
  • Ask the groups within the church (i.e. Women's Groups, Seniors Groups, Sunday School) to collect as a special ministry
  • We also accept personal collections that are already in books, binders, etc.
  • If mailing to CBS please ask for Stamps to be put on the package vs. the electronic metering – we will collect those stamps and add them to the boxes
