FUNDRAISING HELP STARTS HERE
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO WE START OUR CATALOG FUNDRASIER?
It’s simple! At www.RadaCutlery.com/Go, click the Start Fundraising Tab, and choose the Start Catalog Fundraiser option. Then simply fill in the requested information, including the number of catalogs you need (one for each salesperson), and submit the form. Easy-peasy!
HOW MUCH DO WE NEED TO PURCHASE TO START OUR FUNDRAISER?
No purchase is necessary. Once your group sells and collects money for orders, you’ll place your group order with Rada, paying for the product at that time.
IS THERE A TIME LIMIT ON HOW LONG WE CAN RUN OUR FUNDRAISER?
No. You decide when to start and how long you want to sell.
DO WE HAVE TO USE ONLINE FUNDRAISING OR CAN WE JUST SELL USING THE CATALOG?
You can choose each option alone or both at the same time. The choice is yours!
HOW OFTEN CAN WE PLACE A GROUP ORDER?
As often as you wish! The minimum order is only $20.00 of wholesale items purchased.
HOW DO WE GET PAID FOR OUR CATALOG SALES?
You collect money when taking orders. Your supporters pay the price listed in the Catalog and you pay the cost each price listed on the Order Form (the difference is your 40% profit).
DO SUPPORTERS PAY SHIPPING ON THEIR CATALOG ORDERS?
Supporters are not charged for shipping; however, a $1.00 processing charge is added to each order to help offset the cost of shipping the group order.
DOES RADA CHARGE GROUPS SALES TAX?
We do not charge fundraising groups state or federal taxes.
What’s the process for starting our online fundraiser?

Will I know if someone places an order online?
You’ll be able to view online orders and payment history in your Leader Dashboard. You will also be notified by email every time an order is placed.
How can I track how many online orders each salesperson generates?
You will be able to create a personalized link for each salesperson through our Email-A-Friend program. Each seller will share their own link, and you’ll be able to track sales by salesperson in the Leader Dashboard.
How do supporters shop online on behalf of our group?
Supporters can order through your unique online group store link or by selecting your group’s name at www.RadaFundraising.com. Or you can choose to create Personal Store Links for each group member to share.

• Regular non-sorted orders arrive in our office by December 18.
Can I place more than one order?
Yes, you can, and we encourage you to keep your fundraiser open for a few weeks for any additional orders. After supporters have had a chance to try their Rada products, many will want to order more.
