Student clubs and professional societies at colleges are often limited by a budget. However, there are many resources universities provide that clubs and professional societies can take advantage of in order to help student organizations with fundraising and sponsorship. In particular, the WPI SAE team often finds itself limited by its budget. For this IQP we worked with many different resources around campus to better understand how clubs and societies at WPI could increase their funding and sponsorship. We also interviewed other SAE teams in order to determine if there is a relation between sponsorship work and competition placement.
