Direct Mail for charities

Jersey Post is proud to support many local initiatives and a popular annual service is the provision of a free direct mail to create awareness and raise funds for local charities or not-for-profit organisations.

We are now welcoming applications for 2022. The closing date for these applications is 25 October 21.

What we offer

We offer one free promotional mailing delivery, per quarter for local charities and not-for-profit organisations. The free slot can be used by the successful organisation as they wish e.g., to target homes or businesses, by street, parish, or all Island (which is equivalent to £5,160 per drop). 

What is required by the charity/NPO?

To be eligible, your charity must be registered on the Public Register of the Jersey Charity Commission and/or a Member of the Association of Jersey Charities.

You will need to meet the cost of producing the leaflet or flyer, but the costs involved with sending the mailing will be free of charge to the selected organisation. In addition, Jersey Post will be happy to offer advice on how to produce a compelling and engaging mail piece that can maximise results.

To apply for a free space, charities should outline the purpose of the campaign which should cover:
