This project conducts applied research through a fundraising project for the Alaska Institute for Justice (AIJ).
Founded in 2005, AIJ is a non-profit agency that provides legal services to immigrants and refugees. It represents
people fleeing persecution in their home countries as well as domestic violence and human trafficking crime victims.
It provides the only low-fee services of its kind in the state, helping community members who are often isolated,
low-income, vulnerable to abuse, and with few other avenues to gain legal representation. AIJ also operates a
statewide language interpreter center that provides immigrant and refugee expertise to numerous state and federal
agencies dedicated to health care, social services, and law enforcement.
The AIJ fundraising project will analyze the effectiveness of project management tools used during planning and
execution of a new fundraiser event plan. The project will also apply literature reviews and interviews to assess
AIJ’s and other mature Anchorage area non-profits’ familiarity with project management tools and to provide
recommended project management tools to improve organizational efficiency. The project’s products include an
event plan that consists of immigrant speaker performances and a silent auction. The deliverables are an event
checklist and continuity documents to help AIJ repeat this fundraising event annually. In addition, the project will
deliver publicity tasks designed to increase awareness of the AIJ mission, expand AIJ’s donor base, and increase its
annual donor revenue.
