    of Cage


  1. Caging

    In the direct mail industry, a caging list is a list/database of addresses, updated after a mailing program is completed, with notations on responses, with corrections for addresses for which mail has been returned as undeliverable or forwarded. In third-party direct mail fundraising, a caging agent receives contributions, processes donor mail and "deposits all contributions to the client's account", according to Eberle Associates, a United States direct mail and political fundraising firm. The Association of Fundraising Professionals similarly defines caging as "the process or act of collecting donations by an entity other than the not-for-profit organization for which they were solicited." Often the processing of responses to direct mail is conducted by a third party hired to perform various services, which may include processing payments, compiling product orders, correcting recipient addresses, processing returned mail, providing lockbox services and depositing funds and the associated data processing for each of these services. Caging is a shorthand term for this service bundle. The term may be a derivative of the financial teller cage, since operations related to lockbox services involve the control and protection of funds.
