New Postal Rates Will Boost Costs for Charities

Nonprofits will pay anywhere from 2.8 percent to 4.3 percent more in 2017 to ship presorted fundraising, promotional, or informational letters, also known as standard-mail letters.

Under new postage rates set to go into effect January 22, many nonprofits can also expect to pay more to send standard-mail “flats,” like calendars and small publications, and first-class mail, such as personal letters.
