How it works
Once you’re enrolled in the program, you’ll get 10,000 free credits at the start of each month. It’s a ‘use-it-or-lose-it’ system, so credits will expire at the end of that month. Not to worry – we’ll give you 10,000 more the following month. Simple, right?

Getting started
If your organization is a 501(c)(3), then you’re eligible. Simply sign up for an account and fill out the VerticalResponse Non-Profit application form, they’ll check to make sure that you’re not fibbing about your 501(c)(3) status, and flip the switch.

Take it to the limit
Need to send more than 10,000 emails in one month? No worries. You can purchase additional email credits at a 15% discount. It’s a pay as you go system, so you can buy more credits at any time.

Extra credit
Sorry, but VerticalResponse won’t be providing refunds for credits purchased prior to joining the program. You can either use up your existing credits before getting started, or hang onto them in case you go over your monthly limit. It’s up to you. Existing terms and conditions apply. See our pricing page for detailed pricing on all services.

Wait, there’s more!
Why not use postcards to help grow your email list? Or surveys to find out more about your patrons or members? VerticalResponse also offers a 15% discount on Surveys and Direct Mail postcards.
