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

Prepared to launch a donation campaign for your New YorkManhattan County non-profit organization … but unclear where to begin? Has the staffer who oversaw the earlier outreach retired or exited? Or, you’re just low on staff and long on work?

 

You want a turnkey mailing service that understands how direct mail for charities functions. 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 operate? 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 substantially reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

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

 

Remember, nothing that has to be sent via First Class Mail® is eligible 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 classify 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 New YorkManhattan County organization. It won’t work. Authorized organizations are prohibited 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 New YorkManhattan County organization eligible? Probably, 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.

 

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,” however. We don’t stop at preparing your mail for the greatest 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, 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 fund-raising pieces. We know the regulations, the rates, and how to get your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.
