As the number of serious philatelists shrinks, efforts to attract new collectors is a hot topic. Some are reaching out to younger audiences, but is that a low-yield approach? Would it be wiser to go after the seniors?

I'm 70. A young 70, but still.... I have spent the last 50 plus years collecting and and am now in the process of organizing and recording my beloved acquisitions. All great so far. But what will happen when I'm no longer able or even around to manage the collection. None of my children or grandchildren seem interested, although I continue my appeals to them. So what do I envision as an end goal for the collection. What steps should I take now to assure (or at least increase the odds) of that coming about. There must be many out the who are asking the same questions. Any suggestions?
