The club has established a grant program to help school teachers with the cost of using stamps in their school curriculum. Grants will be limited to school systems in the Greater Mid-South (Memphis, TN) area. Please see the MSCS Grant page.

The Memphis Stamp Collectors Society, was initially organized in 1953 and has been a charter, American Philatelic Society (APS) Chapter, since May 1963.

The purpose of the Society is to encourage and aid in the collecting and study of postage stamps and  all related  areas  of  philatelic  interest, facilitate  contact  among  collectors,  provide facilities and opportunities for the dissemination of  information  for  the  advancement  of  the science and hobby of philately  and to provide friendships among all collectors.​​
The membership of the club is drawn from the greater  Memphis  Metropolitan  area  with members from Mississippi and Arkansas regularly joining their  Tennessee  associates. Membership is made up of all age groups.

A sample of collecting options are displayed here.  The options are vast, and limited only by one's interest, imagination and, perhaps, one's checkbook.
