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

Looking to start up a donation effort for your Maricopa County charity … but unsure where to start? Perhaps the team member who directed the last outreach retired or left? Or, you’re just low on workers and long on tasks to be done?

 

You need a turnkey mailing service that comprehends how direct mail for non-profits works. In other words, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the hard work fund-raising can be imposing, and ripe for pitfalls. How do non-profit postage rates operate? Which types of operations qualify? Can any materials be mailed, or only specific types?

 

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

 

You can reap tremendous savings on postage … as long as you obey the rules. Bresser’s Information Services understands them thoroughly, and is ready to help.

 

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

 

So, what can you mail at non-profit rates? Self-mailers, letters, newsletters and booklets weighing less than 16 ounces can qualify 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 piggyback on the non-profit status of another Maricopa County organization. It won’t work. Authorized organizations are prohibited from sharing their mailing privilege. Apply for your own.

 

How? Complete PS Form 3624, Application to Mail at Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® Prices. Be prepared to show documentation that your organization is a legal non-profit. Fill out the form completely. 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 classifications of organizations eligible for Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® prices are many: 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,” however. We don’t stop at readying your mail for the greatest postage savings, and dropping 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 give to specific causes. Clean up your list, removing vacant and duplicate addresses. Find new addresses for recipients who have moved.

 

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