READY TO START YOUR FUNDRAISER?
Why is a Rada fundraiser right for our organization?
Be assured, people love Rada Cutlery! And it’s not just us saying that. We hear from leaders from across the United States who run very successful Rada Cutlery fundraisers year after year – often at the request of their supporters. PLUS your supporters get 100% American-made craftsmanship at a great value!
Why are Rada fundraisers so successful?
What types of groups can hold a Rada fundraiser?
Any group that needs to raise funds can participate. This includes—but is not limited to—school groups, church groups, dance clubs, pet rescues, band and chorus groups, 4-H groups, and Relay for Life teams. From elementary kids to retirees and everyone in between, a Rada Cutlery fundraiser is the right fit.
How long should our Catalog Fundraiser last?
What’s the right timeline for YOUR group? Here are a few examples to keep in mind when deciding:
|Offering a short time period allows young sellers to get it done quickly. This is also ideal when your group needs their profits fast.
|This offers a little extra wiggle room for high schoolers who might be active in extracurricular activities and just don’t have a lot of free time.
|Perfect for a group that doesn’t have an immediate need and could set out a catalog and order forms in communal areas, like a church vestibule.
|Some groups keep their fundraisers open with no end date. This is great for those who have ongoing needs such as pet rescues.

How does our group get paid?
For face-to-face catalog sales, your supporters pay you the price listed in the catalog and you pay Rada the cost listed on the Order Form. You keep the difference—that’s your 40%.
Groups that use the online selling option are sent an email with their profit check attached every month. Print the check on any printer and take it to your bank or credit union for deposit.
If you choose to sell with both catalogs and online, you’ll get paid for each type as described above.
What about fundraising during the COVID-19 pandemic?
We understand that times like these are certainly frustrating and particularly stressful for groups needing funds. BUT fundraising groups can still earn a good profit by using our hands-free Online Fundraising option. With no face-to-face contact (no order taking, money handling, or product delivery), your group members stay safe. You can read more about it here.
