Non Profit Printing Services
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. Printing Center USA offers a variety of print solutions to nonprofits, ranging from color brochures to promotional calendars.
When it comes to reaching new donors, nonprofits traditionally find the most success using direct mail. According to a recent report from The Blackbaud Index of Online Giving, charitable donations increased 6.2 percent from March 2010 to May 2010. The majority of these contributions were made using traditional platforms, such as direct mail, which accounted for nearly 95 percent of donations.
Small organizations find print materials are especially effective for generating contributions, with many firms acquiring 92.7 percent of donations through traditional methods.
Older philanthropists between the ages of 40 and 60 are more likely to respond to print materials that are mailed to them, which is important because they also make larger donations. Additionally, donors that are acquired through direct mail are more likely to make repeat donations.
Nonprofit organizations will find Printing Center USA offers a large array of direct mail materials. 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 direct mail package to encourage recipients to donate.
Another way that philanthropic organizations use print materials to raise funds is by selling promotional items. For example, printing calendars is relatively inexpensive and can be done quickly. Charities can then sell the calendars, providing donors with a long-lasting value for their contributions. Similarly, nonprofits can print packs of greeting cards with images representing their organization to sell for funds.
Furthermore, nonprofits can use posters and flyers to promote fundraising events, maximizing turn out and generating public awareness. Once charities have acquired donors, they can print and mail newsletters, allowing them to keep donors informed about organizational developments, upcoming events and fundraising drives.

Printing Center USA also offers competitive prices for quantities between one and 10,000 pieces.
