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

Prepared to start up a fund-raising campaign for your Wauwatosa non-profit … but not sure where to begin? Perhaps the person who oversaw the prior 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 grasps how direct mail for non-profits works. In other words, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the hard work fund-raising can be imposing, and ripe for errors. How do non-profit postage rates operate? Which types of organizations are eligible? 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 substantially reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

You can reap serious savings on postage … as long as you adhere to the rules. Bresser’s Information Services understands them inside and out, and is ready 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 mail at non-profit rates? Self-mailers, letters, newsletters and booklets weighing less than 16 ounces can classify 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 jump onto the non-profit status of another Wauwatosa organization. It won’t work. Authorized organizations are barred from sharing their mailing privilege. Get 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 completely. Doing so can make the difference in a decision returning in days, versus weeks.

 

Is your Wauwatosa organization eligible? Most likely, 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.

 

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,” though. We don’t stop at preparing 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 specific causes. Clean up your list, removing 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 mailers. We understand the rules, the rates, and how to get your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.
