Abstract

The FRAXA Foundation’s annual fundraising depends heavily on event organization and volunteer management. With the goal of improving event efficiency, we analyzed eight nonprofit fundraising events across five organizations to assess necessary time commitments and volunteer requirements, as well as return on investment. From our findings, we crafted an event guide and synthesized recommendations for FRAXA to increase yearly revenue from fundraisers by encouraging community members to self-organize small scale events such as cornhole tournaments, fundraising walks, and game streams.
