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

Hoping to start up a donation campaign for your New YorkManhattan County charity … but not sure where to start? Has the person who oversaw the earlier outreach retired or left? Or, you’re just short on employees and long on work?

 

You need a turnkey mailing service that comprehends how direct mail for non-profits operates. In other words, you need Bresser’s Information Services, a mail service provider (MSP) that does the hard work fund-raising can be ambiguous, and ripe for pitfalls. 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 sent as USPS Marketing Mail®, by organizations authorized by the Postal Service™, at significantly reduced non-profit postage rates.

 

You can reap sizable savings on postage … as long as you follow the rules. Bresser’s Information Services understands them completely, 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 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. Stated otherwise, don’t try to utilize the non-profit status of another New YorkManhattan County organization. It won’t end well. 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 evidence 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 New YorkManhattan County organization eligible? Very likely, as long as your due diligence is complete. The categories of organizations eligible for Nonprofit USPS Marketing Mail® rates 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,” though. We don’t stop at preparing 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 support specific causes. Polish 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 materials. We know the regulations, the rates, and how to get your fund-raising outreach in the right hands.
