The following are tips to reduce unwanted mail.

1. Be selective in the charity you are giving to. Even some of the more “well known” charities sell their list of subscribers. It dosen’t make any difference the amount you give. Even the smallest donation gets you on their list of donors.

2. Always include a statement with your donation making it clear that all future donations will be predicated in not giving out your name to other organizations.

3. If you are getting a large amount of mail from certain charities, write to them. Tell them they are wasting their money sending you multiple mailings. Ask to have your name removed from their list. This might not happen because the mailing you received might have come from a “bought list”. Often they do not keep these lists after a mailing.

4. Contact the Direct Mailing Association and request your name be removed from all of their direct mailing companies they are associated with. You can also write to:
