The Rada Cutlery fundraising program offers a free Simple Sorting service. The Simple Sorting process makes it easy for the leaders of larger fundraisers, such as marching bands, PTO groups, elementary schools, etc – any group that has a large number of sellers.

The features of “Simple Sorting” include:

1)  Your orders are bundled by salesperson to make it easy for you to distribute when you receive your shipment.

2)  Each salesperson receives a printout of what they sold and the amount of profit they earned. The leader receives a profit summary for all salespeople.

3)  The “Simple Sorting” service is free but requires a minimum order of $1,000 or more in money collected.

You have two options for submitting a Sorted Order:

1)  You can mail us your Order Takers and payment information. We will enter your orders for you. Your order will ship in 4 working days.
