Legacy Offering - Reports: Why can't I sort contribution statements by zip code?

Why can't I sort contribution statements by zip code?

Although some parishes send contribution statements through bulk mail, contribution statements do not meet the criteria for bulk mail pricing according to USPS policy

Details of bulk mail pricing and eligibility are found in  Section 243 of the Domestic Mail Manual

Section 2.2 reads

Personal information may not be included in a USPS Marketing Mail mailpiece unless all of the following conditions are met:

    1. The mailpiece contains explicit advertising for a product or service for sale or lease or an explicit solicitation for a donation.
    2. All of the personal information is directly related to the advertising or solicitation.
    3. The exclusive reason for the inclusion of all of the personal information is to support the advertising or solicitation in the mailpiece.

Since contribution statements include additional personal information, they should not be sent through bulk mail. Because of this, the Family Suite doesn't provide a way to sort contribution statements for bulk mailing.
