Stamps for the Wounded

Stamps for the Wounded (SFTW) is a service organization dedicated to providing comfort and stimulating activity to U.S. veterans through stamp collecting. SFTW sends donated postage stamps and other philatelic material and supplies to wounded, ill, and isolated veterans. SFTW has been helping veterans since 1942.

Stamps for the Wounded is always in search of veterans to receive donated materials. If you are a veteran who would like to receive philatelic material at home, please click on For Veterans for more information about how to get started. Family members of a veteran who might benefit from an activity that is interesting, stimulating and not physically challenging may contact us on their behalf.

To serve our veterans, we rely on donations : postage stamps saved from the mail, philatelic materials from stamp collections, unused stamps purchased from the post office, collector supplies and cash donations. Please see our Donate page for more information about how you can help veterans.

We have a color brochure that describes the organization, what we do, and how you can help. Please have a look. Please feel free to download and print the brochure and distribute it to others who may be able to help … or share our web address:
