Independent Auditor’s Report on the Co nsolid ated F inancia l Statem ents
To the B oard of Directors American Philatelic Society and American Philatelic Research Library State C ollege , Pen nsylvan ia
W e have aud ited the a cco mpa nying co nsolid ated sta teme nts of finan cial po sition of A meric an P hilatelic S ociety and American Philatelic Research Library (the Organization) as of December 31, 2002 and 2001, and the related consolidated statem ents of activities and cash flows for the years then en ded. T hese financial statements are the responsibility of the Org aniza tion’s management. Our respo nsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. W e conducted our aud its in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Tho se standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statem ents are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amo unts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimate s mad e by m anag eme nt, as well as eva luating the over all financia l stateme nt pres entatio n. W e believe that our audit provides a reasonable bases for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects the financial position of American Philatelic Society and American Philatelic Research Library as of December 31, 2002 and 2001, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Organization The American Philatelic Society (APS) was organized to promote awareness of stamp collecting in the United States and abroad. APS publishes the American Philatelist and provides a range of educational and philatelic services and facilitates for the benefit of collectors. The Am erican Philate lic Res earch Libra ry (APRL) maintains a comprehensive philatelic library to support and encourage resea rch re lated to philately. B . Basis of Presentation Financial statement presen tation follows the recom mend ations of the Financia l Acco unting S tanda rds B oard s on its Statem ents of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 117, Fina ncial Statem ents of No t-for-Profit Org anization s. Under SFAS No. 117, APS and APRL are required to report information regarding their financial position and activities according to three classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets and permanently restricted net assets. C. Basis of Accounting APS and APRL prep are the ir financia l stateme nts on the accru al basis of accounting. Revenue is recognized when earned and expenses are recorded when the obligation is incurred. D . Principles of Consolidation The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of APS and AP RL. Significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. E. Use of Estimates The preparation of financia l statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accord ingly, actual re sults could d iffer from these estimates. F. Income Taxes APS and APRL are exempt from the payment of income taxes on their exempt activities under Internal Revenue Code Sections 501 (c)(3 ). Both AP S and APRL qualify for the charitable deduction under Section 170(b)(1)(A) and have been classified as org aniza tions tha t are no t private found ations u nde r Sec tion 50 9(a) (2). G . Cash and c ash eq uivalen ts Cash and cash equivalents include readily available funds held by local banking institutions. Other highly liquid investments including m oney ma rket funds are classified as investme nts. H . Inventory Inventory consists of publications and souvenir items and is stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market value. I. Property and Equipm ent AP S and AP RL c apitaliz e all pro perty a nd eq uipm ent pu rchas es of $ 1,00 0 or greate r. Acquisitions of property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of 40 years for the b uilding a nd im pro vem ents, and 5 to 1 0 year s for furnitu re and equip men t.

Collections APRL has a collection of philatelic reference and research material used by philatelists and researchers interested in studying issues rela ted to philately. APRL ensures that the collection is protected and preserved and that proceeds from the sale of c ollectio n items a re used to pur chase add itional co llection ite ms. No value for the collec tion is reflec ted in the accompanying financial statements as APRL does not capitalize collections. APS has a reference stamp collection that is used for expertising and research b y APS and its memb ers. K . Deferred Dues Deferred dues repre sent am ounts p aid to AP S and AP RL in adva nce fo r annu al and life memb ership dues. T hese amounts are reported as liabilities in the accompanying consolidated statement of financial position. L. Stamp Sales on Consignment Stamp sales on consignm ent represents fund s received for sales, less co mmissions, from member stamp books held by APS on consignment. These funds are remitted to members when the related stamp books are retired. M . Ne t Assets Te mpo rarily restricted net assets represent amounts limited by donor-imposed stipulations. Permanently restricted net assets represent amounts limited by donor-imposed stipulations requiring that the principal be invested in perp etuity. Earnings on permanently restricted net assets may be used by the Organization and are either restricted or tem por arily restricted in nature. N . Restricted and Unrestricted Revenues and C ontributions APS and A PR L hav e ado pted SFA S N o. 11 6, Acco unting for Con tributions Received and Contributions Made. Contributions are recognized when the donor makes an uncond itional promise to give to the Organization. Contributions are recorded as unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted support, depending on the existence and/or nature of any do nor restrictions. Contributions that are restricted by the donor are reported as increases in unrestricted net assets if the restrictions expire in the reporting perio d in which the contributions are recognized. All other donor restricted contributions are reported as increa ses in tem por arily or p erma nently res tricted n et assets , depending on the nature of the restrictions. When a restriction expires (that is, when a stipulated restriction end s or purp ose restriction is ac com plished ), temp orar ily restricted net asse ts are rec lassified to unrestr icted net a ssets and repo rted in th e statem ent of ac tivities as net a ssets released from restriction. The Organization uses the allowance method to determine uncollectible amount of unconditional promises receivable. The allowance is based on prior years’ experience and management’s analysis of specific promises made. The Organization believes that no allowance for uncollectible promises is necessary at December 31, 2002. O . Functional Allocation of Expenses The costs of providing various programs and adm inistrative activities have been summarized on a function basis in the statement of activities. Accordingly, certain costs have been allocated among the programs and supporting services benefitted. P. Reclassifications Cer tain reclassifications have been made to the 2001 financial statements to make them conform with the 2002 financial statements.
