GiftWorks CASS/NCOA Processing
Certifying the accuracy of your donor addresses
Save money on mailing costs by certifying the accuracy of your donor addresses using the GiftWorks CASS/NCOA Address Certification Service. FrontStream will certify your addresses, then update them in your GiftWorks database. GiftWorks Premium users will be able to take full advantage of USPS Standard Mail Automation discounts by using the CASS/NCOA Address Certification Service and using bar codes on mailing labels. This service works with GiftWorks Standard, Premium, and Anywhere.
CASS is the Coding Accuracy Support System. It ensures the accuracy of zip codes and delivery point bar codes that appear on your mail pieces. CASS Certification is valid for 180 days.
NCOA (National Change of Address) compares your mailing list to more than 160 million address changes. When a postal customer files a permanent change of address with their local Post Office, the move is added to NCOA. When name and address information on your mailing list matches name and “old” address information on NCOA, your mailing list will be updated with the new address. NCOA certification is valid for 90 days.
If your donor records exceed 20,000, the cost of this service is $199.
