This begs the question, what happens to the previous forms of communication that we took for granted?
With an increasing percentage of people using online billing for mortgage payments, credit cards and utilities, frequency of how often we use the Postal Service has decreased. From a national to local level most are looking to tighten their belt. Based on supply and demand changes in the Postal Service are inevitable.
What could this mean to schools and nonprofits? The nation’s 1.8 million nonprofits received more than $300 billion in 2009, according to Guidestar. Direct mail accounted for 78 percent of contributions in 2009, according to Target Analytics.
