Small Grants Scheme

The ABPS can provide financial support to local and specialist societies where additional funds are needed to help with an activity to promote philately.

By way of example, this could include holding an exhibition in a local library or museum to promote a society, arranging a seminar or producing promotional material.

Applications for a small grant, with details of the project, can be made by email to
