Bulk Mailings

What is Bulk Email Management for Nonprofits?

Nonprofit bulk email management refers to the process of sending out large quantities of emails to a group of people or a mailing list for a nonprofit organization. It involves using email marketing software or a customer relationship management (CRM) system to send emails to supporters, donors, volunteers, or other stakeholders.

Bulk email management allows nonprofit organizations to communicate with their audience more efficiently and effectively. By sending emails in bulk, nonprofits can save time and resources while still delivering personalized and targeted messages to their subscribers.

What is CiviMail?

The CiviMail component is a sophisticated tool for handling mass email campaigns. It can reliably deliver a high volume of email and provide detailed reports on the results and effectiveness of those emails. CiviMail is often used to complement other CiviCRM components, for example to send emails to non-members to encourage them to become members or to send emails to people that are yet to register for an event.

CiviMail (like all of CiviCRM’s mail features) interacts with your mail server. Configuring the mail server and properly setting up CiviMail are system administrator tasks and you may require professional assistance. You will also need to check with your web hosting provider to ensure that they meet the configuration requirements, and find out about any limits they may have on how many emails you can send per day. A misconfigured mail server is a liability and if you don’t know what you are doing you could easily end up on a spam black list. Getting off a spam black list is much harder that getting on it. For more information about configuring your mail server, see the Email system configuration chapter in the Initial set up section.
