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

Ready to launch a donation effort for your Milwaukee County non-profit … but unclear where to begin? Maybe the staffer who ran the previous outreach retired or left? Or, you’re just low on help and long on tasks to be done?

 

You want a turnkey mailing service that grasps how direct mail for non-profits operates. In other words, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the charity fund-raising can be imposing, and ripe for pitfalls. How do non-profit postage rates work? Which types of operations 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 considerably reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

You can glean sizable savings on postage … as long as you stick to the rules. Bresser’s Information Services knows them inside and out, and is prepared to help.

 

Remember, nothing that has to be sent 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 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 utilize the non-profit status of another Milwaukee County organization. It won’t fly. 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 prepared to show proof that your organization is a legal non-profit. Fill out the form entirely. Doing so can be the difference in a decision returning in days, versus weeks.

 

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

 

Got your non-profit authorization? Great. Let’s get your mailing moving. Bresser’s Information Services will mail on your organization’s behalf, using our mailing permit.

 

There’s a reason our name includes “services,” though. We don’t stop at readying your mail for the largest 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 certain causes. Polish up your list, deleting 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 fund-raising mailers. We understand the rules, the rates, and how to land your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.

 

Contact us to initiate your next Milwaukee County fund-raising effort. We’re a mail house, for sure – one dedicated to keeping your non-profit house strong, vibrant, and doing good work in the community.
