    Default about the word fund raisings

    there are a lot of fund raisings going on, lately.

    does the word fund raising take an s --> in its plural form

    it looks awkward.

    I wouldn't put it into the plural- I think of it as an activity, not the events.

    You want to use - there are a lot of fund raisers going on (save the world from overpriced gift wrap, candy and scented candles :wink: )
