Why don’t you want me to send material requiring a signature?

When you send to a PO Box a package require recipient signature, the Post Office places in the PO Box a small piece of paper which must be presented to a clerk who then retrieves the package. Because the foundation receives a lot of mail, it is easy to lose this small piece of paper by not noticing it in between the other envelopes in the box. Furthermore, it forces the secretary to stand in line during business hours to retrieve your package. Also, if nobody checks the PO Box for a period of time, the package may be returned to you. Finally, the Foundation accepts application materials by postmark date, not receipt date. So you’re just wasting your money sending things by Express Mail and Priority Mail and FedEx and Certified Mail, etc.

If you do need to send something through a delivery service, contact FEF first for instructions.
