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

Hoping to start up a donation campaign for your King County charity … but uncertain where to start? Maybe the staffer who supervised the previous outreach retired or departed? Or, you’re just short on help and long on work?

 

You want a turnkey mailing service that knows how direct mail for non-profits operates. Put differently, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the hard work 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 mailed as USPS Marketing Mail®, by organizations authorized by the Postal Service™, at considerably reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

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

 

Remember, nothing that has to be sent via First Class Mail® qualifies 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 qualify 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 King 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 evidence that your organization is a legal non-profit. Fill out the form entirely. Doing so can make the difference in a decision returning in days, versus weeks.

 

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

 

Got your non-profit authorization? Great. Let’s get down to business. 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, 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 donation campaign materials. We know the regulations, the rates, and how to land your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.
