Mission trips are one of the most notable activities done by churches. Volunteers travel to locations near and far to do good deeds while spreading the gospel. A mission trip could take one to a neighboring state, to the next country over, or an exotic land traveled by few outsiders! These trips are a great life experience, both for those part of the mission and those aided by it.
Mission Trip Fundraiser
Mission trips are a tremendous undertaking, and that means resources are needed. Such trips require organization, transportation, supplies, and more. The costs of a mission trip quickly add up, meaning that such an endeavor isn’t just an investment of time, but substantial amounts of money. Expenses add up, and a lack of funds can stop a mission trip before it even begins.
Thankfully, there’s an ideal way to earn money for mission trips, and that way is Rada Cutlery!
Fundraise for Church Trips with Rada Cutlery
At Rada Cutlery, we’ve been helping church groups raise money for their projects since 1948. Our fundraising program allows your group to offer supporters our extensive catalog of superior kitchen products, all priced at an unbeatable value. It’s the best mission trip fundraiser around!
We offer three distinct sales methods designed to utilize the strengths of your group: catalog, event, and online sales. With catalog sales, you show potential supporters a Rada Cutlery catalog and take their order. For event sales, you set up a table with products to sell at an event such as a festival, church bazaar, or crafts show, where you then sell the products directly to those in attendance. And for online sales, you simply use email and social media to spread the word about your fundraiser, linking to an online store where the sales will be attributed to your group and you will receive the profits.
Your group can use one, two, or all three methods to maximize effectiveness. Each sale nets an astounding 40% profit, so the money adds up fast!
We often hear from groups who have successfully funded mission trips with Rada Cutlery’s help.
