A new “Liberty Platinum” category for donations between $2,501 and $9,999 has been added to World Stamp Show-NY 2016’s list of membership levels.
Donna Richardson, the exhibition’s Executive Director explained, “In working with our Leadership Circle and Liberty Club Chairs, we became aware of a notable gap in our donor levels. Together with their input, and that of the philatelic community, we created our ‘Liberty Platinum’ level to properly recognize and reward such major donations.”
Each of the now seven contribution levels comes with its own list of premiums ranging from exhibit frame Honor Plaques to dinner tickets to the Awards Palmares. These can be seen online. It is also possible to donate through PayPal or a major credit card on the same web page. Most membership levels have the option to split the donation by making two equal payments, one now and another in January, 2016.
To date over $400,000 has been donated outright or pledged by philatelists in the U.S. and other countries in support of WSS-NY 2016. As an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) organization, Americans who itemize are entitled to use their donation as a tax deduction to the fullest extent of the law. Donations of any amount are welcomed.
World Stamp Show-NY 2016 takes place May 28 to June 4 at the Javits Center in New York City. Visit the show’s web site, and check out our daily Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter postings.
