Seeking to launch a donation effort for your Los Angeles County non-profit … but not sure where to begin? Perhaps the person who supervised the last outreach retired or left? Or, you’re just low on workers and long on work?

 

You want a turnkey mailing service that understands how direct mail for charities operates. In other words, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the logistical limbo) for your Los Angeles County direct mail fund-raising.

 

Using direct mail for {non-profit fund-raising can be ambiguous, and ripe for errors. How do non-profit postage rates work? Which types of organizations qualify? Can any materials be mailed, or only certain 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 tremendous savings on postage … as long as you follow the rules. Bresser’s Information Services knows them completely, and is prepared to help.

 

Remember, nothing that requires sending via First Class Mail® is eligible for non-profit rates. The rules are clearly laid out. 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 classify 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 Los Angeles County organization. It won’t end well. Authorized organizations are barred from sharing their mailing privilege. Get your own.
