Fund-Raising for Maricopa County Non-Profits? Our Mail House Delivers Turnkey Mailing Service for Your Donation Campaigns!

Prepared to start up a donation campaign for your Maricopa County non-profit … but not sure where to start? Perhaps the team member who supervised the prior outreach retired or departed? Or, you’re just short on help and long on tasks to be done?

 

You need a turnkey mailing service that understands how direct mail for non-profits works. Simply put, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the heavy lifting fund-raising can be ambiguous, and ripe for mistakes. How do non-profit postage rates operate? Which types of operations are eligible? Can any materials be mailed, or only specific types?

 

First, a definition. Non-profit mail is printed material eligible to be mailed as USPS Marketing Mail®, by organizations authorized by the Postal Service™, at substantially reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

You can reap serious savings on postage … as long as you adhere to the rules. Bresser’s Information Services understands them thoroughly, and is prepared to assist.

 

Remember, nothing that has to be sent via First Class Mail® qualifies for non-profit rates. The rules are well defined. Unbendable. Don’t even try.

 

So, what can you send at non-profit rates? Self-mailers, letters, newsletters and booklets weighing less than 16 ounces can be eligible for USPS Marketing Mail®.

 

Only materials of authorized organizations, registered as non-profits with USPS, can be mailed at non-profit rates. Stated otherwise, don’t try to utilize the non-profit status of another Maricopa County organization. It won’t work. Authorized organizations are barred from sharing their mailing privilege. Obtain your own.

 

How? Complete PS Form 3624, Application to Mail at Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® Prices. Be ready to show evidence that your organization is a legal non-profit. Fill out the form entirely. Doing so can be the difference in a decision returning in days, versus weeks.

 

Is your Maricopa County organization eligible? Most likely, as long as your due diligence is complete. The categories of organizations approved for Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® prices are lengthy: philanthropic, religious, educational, veterans, scientific, labor, fraternal, political … the list goes on.

 

Got your non-profit authorization? Great. Let’s get to work. Bresser’s Information Services will mail on your organization’s behalf, using our mailing permit.

 

There’s a reason our name includes “services,” though. We don’t stop at preparing your mail for the greatest postage savings, and delivering it at the post office.

 

We provide advice on designing your mail piece. Print your materials in full color. Populate and expand your mailing list, using recipients known to support certain causes. Polish up your list, deleting vacant and duplicate addresses. Find new addresses for recipients who have relocated.

 

Since its founding in 1946, Bresser’s Information Services has printed, addressed and mailed millions of fund-raising pieces. We know the rules, the rates, and how to land your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.
