How to Opt Out of Salvation Army Junk Mail

July 24, 2022

The Salvation Army is one of the most well-known charitable organizations in the U.S. But, in order to raise money for their cause, they often send out a lot of unwanted marketing mail.

Although you may want to help by donating, it’s not always possible. So, instead, help the Salvation Army conserve resources by opting out of their mailing list. 

Why am I getting junk mail from the Salvation Army? 

If you’ve ever supported or donated to the Salvation Army in the past, it’s likely you’ve been added to their mailing list. This might include lists for direct mail, emails, or phone calls

Before getting started, however, it’s important to note that if you are, indeed, a regular Salvation Army donor, you may also receive legitimate solicitation about fundraising campaigns.

How do I opt out of the Salvation Army mailing list?

The quickest way to remove yourself from the Salvation Army mailing list is to contact them directly. The organization provides two different options to do so:

As an added precaution, we also suggest you register at DMAchoice. For only $2, you can ensure you’re opted out of general unsolicited marketing for up to ten years. 

What if I continue to receive mail from the Salvation Army?

The Salvation Army doesn’t state how long the opt-out process takes to complete. So, when speaking to them directly, make sure to ask how long you’ll have to wait. 

If you’re still receiving spam from the Salvation Army after more than 6 weeks, there are some other options you can try. 

  • Return all mail from the Salvation Army. If there’s a return address, write “Refused: Return to Sender” and mail it back. (Keep in mind, mail must be unopened.)  

How do I stay off the Salvation Army’s mailing list for good? 

If you take all these courses of action, be aware you can still be added to the Salvation Army mailing list as a result of any future correspondence with them. 

Also, unsubscribing from the Salvation Army mailing list may not entirely guarantee you won’t receive spam from them at some point. 

That is because organizations like the Salvation Army employ the services of data brokers to access your personal information without your consent.  

If you want to stop receiving unwanted mail from the Salvation Army and other companies for good, you need to delete your personal information from data-broker sites.
