Enhancing the well-being of humans through community service or donations has long been an American tradition. Gifts from private donors have established churches, colleges, libraries, hospitals, and other worthy foundations. Today, Americans contribute more than $10 billion a year to public agencies. 
 
Andrew Carnegie is recognized as one of America’s greatest philanthropists. His gifts and bequests exceed $350 million. Among the many institutions Carnegie made possible are the Endowment for International Peace, Carnegie Hall, and over 2,500 public libraries.
 
To ease his polio symptoms, President Franklin D. Roosevelt spent part of each year in Warm Springs, Ga., swimming in the mineral water there. In 1926, he bought the springs and surrounding land, and provided low-cost treatment to others who suffered from polio.
 
Other notable American philanthropists include the Rockefeller family, who have given over $1 billion to charities and foundations; Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage, who donated $75 million to museums, hospitals, and other institutions; and Joseph Pulitzer, who besides donating millions to educational and civic organizations, created the awards for journalism, literature, music, and art which bear his name.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
