Three Fundraising Options

Your group can choose any or all of the three options:

  1. Catalog Sales
  2. Event Sales
  3. Internet Fundraising

Catalog Sales

The majority of groups sell from the Rada Cutlery catalog. Typically group members each are given a Catalog and an Order Taker for them to show to their family, friends, co-workers, etc.

Catalog & Order Taker

The catalog is designed to make it easy for your supporters to browse and make their selections.

  • 32 pages of products
  • Prices in $.25 increments for easy adding

New catalogs are available each year on August 1st. This is when any new items are introduced and any pricing adjustments are made.

Your group is allowed 10 free catalogs per year. Additional catalogs can be purchased for $.20 each. The catalog charges are waived if you sell $1,000 or more (to get 300+ catalogs you must sell $5,000+).

Order Takers are used to record which items your supporters purchase and to total their order. One Order Taker is sent for each catalog and provides space for 10 supporter orders. Copies can be made as needed.

  • Simple to use
  • 10 order squares (front and back)
  • Adds $.50 per order for processing (helps you cover your shipping charge)

Instructions

  1. Ask sellers to make sure all of the information is completed for each customer. This will save time for the leader when the order is placed.
  2. Use the Merchandise Total and Grand Total for each seller to confirm the order and cash receipts are in balance.

Event Sales

Some groups choose to order items in and sell from stock. This allows customers to see what they are buying and eliminates the need to deliver items later.

Selling from inventory is done in many different ways. Some groups sell items after meetings or church. Other groups set up at various events and gatherings with lots of people such as bazaars, craft shows, festivals and celebrations.

Unsold items can be returned within 90 days of purchase (cannot return food products). The full Return Policy is posted on the Order Form.

Groups selling from inventory often develop systems for storing and displaying merchandise. Rada Mfg. Co. offers several items in the Selling Materials section that you may find helpful.

Another option is to use the Express Sales packs of either Vegetable Peelers or Regular Paring Knives. They can be purchased in a 24 pack cardboard carrying cases – packaged in plastic tubes with rubber caps.

Internet Fundraising

Your group can also sign up for a free account for distant supporters to place orders and for you to receive the profit.

To sign up, call customer service to be emailed or faxed a form to start the account. We will then provide you with the login information.

Your group shares the login information with friends and family outside your area usually via email and Facebook. Orders placed online are shipped directly to them.

Your supporters will place their orders at www.HelpOurFundraiser.com. They will pay the same prices that are in the catalog.

The profits from these sales are directly deposited to your group’s bank account once a month.
