The Fundraiser seeks out secondary funding sources for CCAT's major events and projects.  Though most of our regular, recurring events are funded by the Associated Students, on occasion we put on bigger events once or twice a semester that we need additional funding and/or raffle prizes for.  Throughout the year, we may also have bigger appropriate technology projects that we need sponsorship to complete.   The Fundraiser ensures that these events and projects can proceed with the financial backing they need.
