Remittance envelopes may be the unsung heroes of a successful appeal. A well-crafted letter inspires your donors; a remittance envelope makes it easy for them to turn that inspiration into action and actually donate to your organization. The reason for this couldn’t be simpler: The more convenient it is to donate, the more donations you’ll receive.
Remittance envelopes are small envelopes that are pre-printed with your organization’s mailing address and are used by donors to enclose a donation and provide their contact information. A flap covers the donor’s information. The size of the remittance envelope is typically 3 ⅝” x 6 ½”. The envelope collects the donor’s contact information, lists suggested donation amounts, and allows them to enclose a check or provide their credit card details.
