Since 2009, the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society has raised over $32,000 for charities in and around Pennsylvania and now we've expanded with the formation of PSWCS.org. PSWCS.org received IRS approval for 501(c)(3) non-profit status (EIN 46-3406572) in November, 2014 which will allow us more opportunities to work with charitable organizations and open new avenues for collecting donations.
PSWCS.org is staffed and operated entirely through the voluntary efforts of the PSWCS.org Board of Directors and by members of the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society. No person or entity receives any form of compensation.
PSWCS.org plans to continue working with Lucasfilm to release approved Star Wars™ medallions and merchandise and looks forward to being able to accept other forms of donations. Our new non-profit status also opens doors to working with a larger range of charities and organizations.There are exciting things ahead for PSWCS.org which will be announced over the coming months.
PSWCS.org charitable medallion to benefit Pets for U.S. Vets
PSWCS.org and the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society are joining forces with Pets for U.S. Vets, a program of the Washington Area Humane Society in Washington, PA (EIN 25-0995781). Pets for U.S. Vets places dogs and cats with local veterans, free of charge. All animals are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.
Pets for U.S. Vets was started by Suzi Smith in 2010 and she has worked tirelessly since then to secure funding to cover the costs of the free adoptions. Now in its sixth year, the program is averaging 50 adoptions per year to veterans.
To raise funds for Pets for U.S. Vets, PSWCS.org will be selling a limited run of 1,000 medallions featuring C-3PO from Star Wars™. This will be the sixth medallion and charity that PSWCS.org has partnered with.
Each medallion will be cast in gold toned metal and will feature C-3PO on the front along with the date and name of the charity, Pets for U.S. Vets. The back will have the PSWCS logo.
The medallions will be sold online for $12.50 each, including shipping, for orders within the USA. International orders are acccepted with a higher shipping fee. The medallions are fully approved by Lucasfilm and will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. A receipt for your donation will also be provided as your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Brad Kulp memorial patch to benefit Fox Chase Cancer Center
On July 15th 2015, Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society member Brad Kulp lost his long fight with cancer, succumbing to a GIST tumor. In lieu of flowers or gifts, his family asked that donations be made to Fox Chase Cancer Center, the hospital where he was treated.
To remember Brad and honor his wishes, we have produced this memorial patch. The patch has been designed from art Brad used as his Facebook cover photo which he was given as thanks for his service to PSWCS. It was manufactured in a one-time run of 100 pieces, and is approved by Lucasfilm. Brad was a passionate patch collector, and we believe this fundraiser will be an ideal way to honor his memory. The net proceeds (money received from the sale less the cost to produce and distribute the patches) raised by this fundraiser will be donated directly to Fox Chase Cancer Center.
The patches are $11 shipped per patch. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Please use the button below to order.
