For charities and nonprofit organizations, print materials can be one of the most effective ways to reach donors, raise funds and generate awareness for their campaigns. PrintingCenterUSA offers a variety of print solutions dedicated to nonprofits, ranging from color brochures to promotional calendars.
When it comes to reaching new donors, nonprofits traditionally find excellent success using targeted mailing lists. Today there is so many emails and digital footprints that non-profits can breakthrough using mailing lists to extend their reach. According to an article in The NonProfit Times, “Donors say that they are slightly more likely to read a piece of direct mail from an organization than an email,” (The NonProfit Times, 2017).
Printed mailers also do a better job of creating emotional connections with potential donors which could be attributed to the tactile nature of the product. Some of the best options when it comes to mailing pieces are postcards and brochures. Postcard come in a variety of sizes from the standard 4”x6” to jumbo postcards, like 6x9, which can often lead to higher response rates.
For low-budget campaigns, charities may want to consider mailing postcards to prospects. Otherwise, they may want to consider using full color brochures. Nonprofits should also remember to include an envelope with their mailing package to encourage recipients to donate.
One of our favorite products for non-profits when it comes to marketing and building a long-lasting connection with donors are calendars. Printing calendars is relatively inexpensive and can be done quickly. Charities can then sell the calendars, providing donors with long-lasting value for their contributions.
Many organizations have had great success in obtaining sponsors to support the upfront cost of printing their calendars before they go to press. Having upfront sponsors also adds extra profits from calendar sales, thus enabling your school or organization to focus on designing and selling your fundraising calendar.
