ACTION ALERT: Feedback Needed on Postal Proposal

Posted by National Catholic Development Conference on Sep 6, 2018 12:34:45 PM

The mailing of premiums by religious charitable mailers is at grave risk.  We ask that you submit comments to the Postal Service as soon as possible in opposition to the August 23 Federal Register Notice of USPS.  The operative, and potentially devastating, proposal is simple: “no merchandise or goods will be allowed of any type regardless of ‘value.’”  Mailing merchandise would be forced into much higher postage categories of First Class, Priority, or Parcel Select, essentially ending premium programs.

 

We are urging immediate action by all religious charitable fundraisers and their business partners in an attempt to get USPS to withdraw the proposal. Below are some resources to help with your comments:

Posted by National Catholic Development Conference on Dec 21, 2017 4:10:47 PM

“For 100 years, the Charitable Tax Deduction has been a landmark institution that exemplifies the charitable spirit of Americans. Protecting this deduction and expanding it to the greatest number of people possible encourages charitable giving by all socioeconomic levels.
