Fund-Raising for Los Angeles County Charities? Our Mail House Delivers Turnkey Mailing Service for Your Donation Campaigns!

Planning to initiate a donation effort for your Los Angeles County non-profit … but unsure where to start? Perhaps the professional who directed the last outreach retired or departed? Or, you’re just low on employees and long on tasks to be done?

 

You want a turnkey mailing service that understands how direct mail for non-profits 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 uncertain, and ripe for mistakes. How do non-profit postage rates operate? Which types of organizations are eligible? 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 significantly reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

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

 

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 be eligible for USPS Marketing Mail®.

 

Only materials of authorized organizations, registered as non-profits with USPS, can be mailed at non-profit rates. Put differently, don’t try to jump onto the non-profit status of another Los Angeles County organization. It won’t fly. Authorized organizations are barred 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 evidence that your organization is a legal non-profit. Fill out the form completely. Doing so can make the difference in a decision returning in days, versus weeks.

 

Is your Los Angeles County organization eligible? Probably, as long as your due diligence is complete. The classifications of organizations approved for Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® rates are many: philanthropic, religious, educational, veterans, scientific, labor, fraternal, political … the list goes on.
