I found three different types of stamps in my basement when moving some things around. I am wondering if they hold any value or would benefit being donated so I dont ruin value.

Answer
Samuel,

The stamps in the photos are very common in used condition, and worth perhaps a penny apiece.  You could donate the stamps to your local scouting organization.  Both Boy and Girl Scouts can earn merit badges in stamp collecting, but often lack material to collect and organize.
