What is Community Post?

Community Post is an important community investment programme for New Zealand Post. We donate postage-included envelopes and Marketing Data Services to not-for-profit organisations for use with projects and activities that align with our community investment themes.

What does Community Post have to offer?

If you're a National Organisation (or have multiple branches which cover most of New Zealand)

New Zealand Post has a broad offering that will help you achieve more.

National Organisations can apply for:

  • DLE, C4 & C5 postage-included envelopes and/or
  • 1 of 5 $10,000 credits towards New Zealand Post's Marketing Data Services

As a National Organisation you need to decide whether to apply as one organisation (on behalf of all your regional branches) and take advantage of the additional offers discussed above. If you do, you will need to advise your regional branches that they can not apply individually. See the Plunket and Melanoma Foundation case studies for examples of this change for National Organisations.

If you're a local/regional organisation (not part of a national organisation)

You can apply for up to 500 DLE postage-included envelopes.
