Filipinas Stamp Collectors' Club (FSCC)

For the FSCC, The year 2005 marks a decade of long efforts to promote stamp collecting. It started on October1994 when several stamp collectors and dealers met to discuss the possibility of organizing a new stamp club that will cater mainly to beginners and intermediate collectors. 

The FSCC started as the Manila Stamp Collectors' Club (MSCC). On January 15, 1995 it held its first meeting at Wendy's Escolta. Elated by the response, the organizers decided to hold monthly meetings and auctions, thereafter. 

On April 1998, it held its first stamp exhibit dubbed "Manpex '98 Summer Stamp Festival" with then Postmaster General Alvin Dans as the guest of honor. In the same year, the MSCC joined the Philippine Philatelic Federation. 

In 2000, MSCC was renamed Filipinas Stamp Collectors' Club. Over the last ten years sincde then, it has grown into one of the country's leading societies for stamp collectors. Besides its monthly meetings and auctions, and annual competitive exhibitions, FSCC continues to conduct lectures in schools under the auspices of the Philippine Philatelic Federation. 

Many of its members have participated and won awards at various international stamp exhibitions. The Philippine Postal Corporation through the Philatelic Service Office has continued to render invaluable support to the clubs' various activities to make known the art of stamp collecting. 

The founding members of the FSCC are Josefina T. Cura, William Go, Rosemary Uy, Ma. Lourdes Watiwat, and Eliezer Jimenez.  Alfonso Cruz later joined the group in the Board of Trustees.
