Because the Boston Mineral Club is a 501(c)(3) organization, you can donate specimens to the auction and deduct them as a charitable contribution on your federal taxes using the values we send you after the auction. Donations can include mineral specimens, lapidary materials and equipment, gemstones, jewelry, rock-related books, mineral magazines, collecting tools—anything related to our hobby. We will give you a dated receipt when you donate any items. To save time, you can download the receipt to fill out and bring in with your specimens. On donated specimens, 100% of the proceeds benefit the club.
We welcome consignment of quality specimens for the voice auction from both members and nonmembers. When consigned items are sold, the club receives 20% of the sale price, and the consignor gets 80%.
