WordCamp Fundraising Research

@andreamiddleton suggested a Fundraising Working group in her post.   In short, the scope will be:

The scope of this project is to research the methods and practices of organizing teams that have been successful in their fundraising and then report back to the global community team with the results. The team may decide to try to send a survey out to WordCamp organizers, or might decide that interviews would be a more effective way to gather data. Volunteers with experience in successful WordCamp fundraising would be a big asset to this working group. We’ll be reporting which camps ran surpluses and deficits at the end of this year, so the group will be able to target their research.

I would like us to get started on this working group. I am pinging @psykro and @kdrewien as you both expressed interest in the original post. I would also like to ask anyone else that would be interested to indicate so in the comments before March 10th. We can then schedule an initial meeting to get started.
