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

Hoping to launch a fund-raising effort for your Dallas County non-profit … but not sure where to start? Has the team member who directed the prior outreach retired or left? Or, you’re just short on staff and long on tasks to be done?

 

You want a turnkey mailing service that comprehends 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 Dallas County direct mail fund-raising.

 

Using direct mail for {non-profit fund-raising can be mysterious, and ripe for pitfalls. How do non-profit postage rates work? 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 significantly reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

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

 

Remember, nothing that requires sending via First Class Mail® is eligible for non-profit rates. The rules are strict. 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 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 ride the non-profit status of another Dallas County organization. It won’t end well. 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 proof 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 Dallas County organization eligible? Very likely, as long as your due diligence is complete. The classifications of organizations eligible for Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® rates are many: philanthropic, religious, educational, veterans, scientific, labor, fraternal, political … the list goes on.
