  • Where can I get a set?

    Justice Postcards are not available for sale. They are only offered as a thank you gift for a donation made to a participating organization. Check out the Get Postcards page or follow us on social media to hear which orgs we are partnering with.  

  • How much postage does each card require to mail?
    These cards need a letter rate stamp such as a Forever stamp. They are too big for the postcard stamp rate.
  • Who should I write to?
    You can write to anyone! I hope you will use some of them to thank activists and leaders who you appreciate. Supportive words are powerfully strengthening.
  • How can I find the address for someone I don't know personally?
    Activist leaders can receive mail through their organizations' mailing address. Help people maintain their privacy by not searching out their home address if you don't know them personally.
  • NonProfits

  • What's the deal here?
    Justice Postcards are a tool to help development directors of justice oriented organizations raise much needed funds. They are meant to be used as an incentive to donors in a month-long donor drive, a crowdfunding campaign, etc..
  • How can my org use the Justice Postcards?
    Justice Postcard sets can be offered to donors as part of your fundraising efforts, in order to increase donations to your org. Individual cards may also be used by your staff to write to donors.
  • Do we have to be a 501(c)3?
    Your org does not have to be a registered 501(c)3 to use Justice Postcards.
  • How can I use Justice Postcards in a way that isn't too sales-ey?
    We have pro photos you could use in your donor drive, but if that doesn't fit with your org's 'voice', you do not have to show or even name them. You could simply say that you have a free gift provided to the org by another supporter, for anyone who donates a certain amount.
  • Can we use share and use the images on the postcards?
    The artists have given permission only for the digital versions of these images to be used in direct conjunction with a fundraising campaign. They cannot be used in any way that isn't directly connected with the fund drive in which they are being offered. All permitted uses of individual images must have the artist's name credited along with it.
  • How many orgs will be using Justice Postcards?
    There are 4500 sets of Justice Postcards available, plenty for multiple orgs to utilize.
  • Logistics

  • Who runs the donor drive?
    Your Development Director or someone from your organization will be writing and sending all the emails for the donor drive.
  • What kind of donor platform is required?
    All donations will come directly to you. Your donor platform will need to accommodate whatever kind of donations you are asking for.
  • Is there a cost to my organization?
    Collective Vision provides postcard sets as an in-kind donation to selected organizations. In some cases Collective Vision may also donate the postage costs to mail each set to your donor ($3.76-$5.50 per set). In other cases, your org will be responsible for costs of delivering sets to your donors.
  • Is there a minimum donation our supporters need to make to us?
    The rules of how to get a donor drive thank you gift are up to you. However, I recommend setting the threshold at $20/ month or a one-time $100 donation, if this seems appropriate for your donor base.
  • Can we only give Justice Postcards to recurring donors?
    I recommend you focus your donor outreach for this drive on getting new monthly donors. But as long as the postcards are used to attract new donations, it's up to you to set the rules of what your donors need to do to get the Justice Postcards.
  • How long can we offer these as thank you gifts?
    I recommend a one month donor drive. This gives you time to send 3-4 reminder and update emails which will maximize your returns without fatiguing your supporters. Having a deadline is a powerful call to action. :)
  • Can we do a second donor drive using Justice Postcards?
    Depending on availability of Justice Postcard sets, this may be an option.
  • Will there be enough Justice Postcards?
    We will discuss projected needs before initiating a donor drive to ensure there will be enough for your needs.
  • How do sets get sent to our new donors?
    When your donor drive is over and the number of sets needed to be sent is determined, the sets are sent to you in a box to mail out to your supporters, or arrangements may be made to have sets mailed by Collective Vision.
  • Origins

  • Do you make any other postcard sets?
    Not anymore. The postcards designed to be sent to Congress (Democracy postcards and Climate postcards) are out of stock and discontinued. The Be a Voter postcards I made for Postcards to Voters are still available through Postcards to Voters, but not through Collective Vision.
  • Why did you make Justice Postcards?
    I made Justice Postcards as a way to help support the super important front line advocacy and organizing work being done to create a more just society and a robust multiracial democracy.
  • Who printed them?
    Justice Postcards were printed by a union printer in Portland Oregon. The union "bug" is printed on the address side.
  • Are you going to make another postcard set or other thank you gifts?
    There are no plans to make any more sets or other types of gifts at this time. But I'll never say never!
