“Be prepared.” This motto is what every Cub Scout and Boy Scout lives by. Last year this organization had about 1.5 million Cub Scouts and around 900,000 Boy Scouts in the United States alone. There are also over 1 million adults who volunteer and help with this organization.

Members of Cub Scout’s age range from 7 to 10 1/2 years old, while Boy Scouts range from 10 1/2  to 18 years old.

Through the Boy Scouts of America, a group called Venturing is offered. This group is for girls and boys who have completed eighth grade and are between the ages of 13 and 21. Last year the group had over 230,000 members.

Cub and Boy Scout Fundraising

Many Cub Scout and Boy Scout troops host fundraisers to raise money for camp, Eagle Scout projects, and much more. Beside the typical popcorn fundraiser, many Boy Scouts of America sell Rada Cutlery for their fundraiser. This year, 120 Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops have already placed orders with us and a typical year will total between 500 and 1,000 troops.

Troops that have fundraised with Rada Cutlery often say that they heard about this opportunity through word of mouth or personal experience with our products.

A leader in Wimauma, Florida said,

“My daughter’s Karate studio utilized your fundraiser several years ago and was a great success. We are thinking this could be our holiday season fundraiser for our Boy Scout Pack.”

A troop in Harold, Kentucky said,

“Rada offers great products at great prices. I have purchased many items in the past and I think this will be a great fundraiser for the group. Thanks.”

Another leader in Dermott, Arkansas said,

“I personally love your knives and was trying to find more ways to raise money for our Cub Scouts.”

One leader in Scottville, Michigan said he recalls selling our products when he was younger.

“I remember selling these as a kid through either 4-H or Scouts, and now that I am involved as a leader I think it would be a good fundraiser for our Cub Scouts. I use them myself, as does several other leaders so we know the great quality you offer.”

Scouts across the United States have found success with Rada Cutlery and raising funds for their groups.

Scouts in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania have found success with Rada Cutlery.

 “We have done our Christmas fundraiser with you for the last 3 years. We always do well and the customers are very happy with your products.”

An East Tawas, Michigan troop said:

“Thank you for all you do for us…EVERYONE loves these knives, cookbooks, etc…we have sold your products before with success.”

Another troop in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania said his troop also had success selling Rada products.

“Last year we tried the Rada Fundraiser, and it was great!! We have 50 scouts in our group this year, so we need 50 fundraising catalogs. We are going to start the first week of November and order the beginning of December. Thank you!!”

Another from West Virginia said:

“Our Boy Scout Troop have ordered several times with your company. It’s been a success, helps the boys pay their way to summer camp. We are glad your products are made in the USA. They are well made.”
