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

Looking to initiate a donation effort for your Granville charity … but not sure where to start? Maybe the person who supervised the last outreach retired or left? Or, you’re just short on staff and long on tasks to be done?

 

You need a turnkey mailing service that understands how direct mail for charities operates. Simply put, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the charity fund-raising can be ambiguous, and ripe for slip-ups. How do non-profit postage rates work? Which types of operations are eligible? Can any materials be mailed, or only certain 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 substantially reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

You can glean sizable savings on postage … as long as you obey the rules. Bresser’s Information Services understands them completely, and is ready to help.

 

Remember, nothing that requires sending via First Class Mail® qualifies for non-profit rates. The rules are well defined. 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 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 piggyback on the non-profit status of another Granville organization. It won’t work. 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 documentation 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 Granville organization eligible? Most likely, as long as your due diligence is complete. The categories of organizations approved 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 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 largest postage savings, and delivering 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. Polish up your list, removing 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 pieces. We know the rules, the rates, and how to get your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.
