How Nonprofits Can Use Direct Mail From Lob

Calah Vargas

We continue to be in awe of all the incredible work that nonprofits and social impact organizations do in their communities, like connecting constituents to their elected officials and empowering veterans and their families. We know to continue this work, many rely on growing and nurturing their donor base. Direct mail can play a key part in not only donor management, but the opportunities are endless for how these organizations can either introduce or expand on their direct mail strategy.

Lob helps nonprofits and social impact organizations free up time for more mission-driven work.
