Duplicates Looking for a Good Home

and other Fund Raising Opportunities to support ISRM's Mission

KEEP ISRM FREE!
All purchases and fees on this page go toward maintaining the museum website and supporting the Slide Rule Loaner Program for Schools. The specimens they replace, however, may be items in the fund raiser. The recommended fee is based on the average total cost of ebay sales for similar specimens over the past two years. 100% satisfaction. All returns accepted, just pay return postage. If you wish to contact me directly and offer a different amount, we will work with you to serve both our needs. Call the Curator, Mike Konshak, at 303-921-8709 days and evenings

    • International Adoptions: Individual slide rules can be shipped outside the United States for $36.70 using a USPS Priority Mail padded envelope.
  5. Email or call Mike, if you run into problems please.
It takes a bit of time for the Curator to respond so, if for some reason, the slide rule has already been adopted, you'll be emailed to see if there is another slide rule that you want to rescue, switch to a direct donation, or get a refund. Personal checks are also accepted. Thanks for your support!

Something new for our supporters to consider now that the International Slide Rule Museum is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation. ISRM is approved to be on Amazon's Smile program. If you shop on Amazon, consider using smile.amazon.com for your on-line purchases.

How does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from over one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer's selected charitable organization.

What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?

The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
