Marble group launches 2013 funding drive

TRUMBULL, Conn. – The Marble Collectors Society of America (MCSA) was founded in 1975 as a non-profit organization established for charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes. Society objectives include gathering and disseminating information as well as performing services to further the hobby of marbles, marble collecting and the preservation of the history of marbles and marble making.

Contributions are needed for the society to continue to meet its goals and publications. The largest portion of contributions received is used to print and mail information generated by the society. None of the contributions are used for compensation; all of the hours spent researching, writing, typing and preparing mailings are done at no expense to the MCSA.

Since the MCSA is a registered non-profit organization, contributions may be tax deductible. Contributors can have their names added to the 2013 MCSA mailing list for $12; $21 covers two years; $30 covers three years.

The MCSA has been an active and vital participant in the growth and visibility of the marble field throughout its 37-year history, and it recognizes its obligations as the leading voice and reporting agency for the hobby.
