Why are Remittance Envelopes so important?
Whether you are a religious institution, university or not for profit organization, remittance envelopes play a huge role in connecting with donors and encouraging them to donate to your movement. Remittance Envelopes work a little bit like business cards in the sense that they contain all the vital information regarding your fundraising efforts. From contact information to a brief summary of your initiative to suggested donation amounts, these envelopes are meant to engage your target audience effectively through your mailings or at fundraising events.
In the case of political campaigns, remittance envelopes make it easier for new endorsers to right a check on-site at a rally.
Are you representing a non-profit organization? Remember to specifically describe where the funds are going and how each donation impacts your organization.
Make your contact information and social media profiles available for everyone to see on your assets, so they can learn more about you.
Do you have a team of volunteers or assistants? Provide each one of them with a stock of letters and envelopes in case they stumble upon a new contributor.
When is it appropriate to use remittance letters?
Schools, nonprofits, churches, as well as athletic leagues typically ask for financial assistance from their members and the public. Whether you run a soup kitchen or an afterschool program, a well-designed envelope will certainly increase your response rates and help you get the funds you need to keep going. Here are a few helpful tips to make your fundraising campaign a successful one and save your donor envelopes from the trash bin:
Use an image on your personalized remittance envelopes that clearly defines your organization. For example, a nature scene is perfect for a not-for-profit working to preserve parks and sanctuaries.
Get prospective donors curious about your organization with a heartfelt quote or an engaging question to encourage them to act. Using a famous quote, this one by Mother Teresa, can be very meaningful, "It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.”
If your organization has to meet a specific deadline, use your envelopes to create a sense of urgency. A countdown for meeting a specific goal can be featured on one side or on the envelope flap.
Announce good news or an upcoming event. Churches raising money for children in need can feature past projects that came to fruition through the generosity of congregation members.
Tradition and Honor - The History of Remittance Correspondence
Print products have the particular characteristic of always having an amazing history behind them, as the revolution of the printing press and its amazing variants through time have marked humanity in very special ways. Remittance correspondence is not an exception and this time we’re taking a trip all the way to the other side of the world, as China has an incredible story to tell about the origins of remittance envelopes.
Between the 19th and 20th century, a great migration process occurred from the Teochew region of the Chinese region of Guangdong towards South-East Asia due to political and social circumstances.
Many families were separated during this period of time, forcing fathers to leave their wives and children behind and vice versa. This was the founding spirit of what are now called the Teochew Letters.
If there was something to describe the Teochew people, it was their pride and close relationship with their culture and history. Those who had to leave their families behind felt the obligation to send part of their salaries to their loved ones back home. Even after years of leaving their people behind, the Teochew would still send letters with money and valuables to their children, parents or spouses.
This was the origin of Remittance Correspondence, a way of staying in touch for families torn apart by conflicts beyond their control or even understanding, providing for their families well-being and maintaining their ideals. There are over 100,000 Teochew Letters preserved and intended to be added to the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
