I did the fundraising last year. We split the cost of his visit between ourselves and a bioethics organization, and he gave two talks, one for each org. For our own cosponsorship we also got a bunch of academic departments to pitch in and stuff. For that I had a lot more lead time, so didn't have to worry about arranging a backstop.

Right, the main problem is that we finalized the date after most departments and funds finalized their budget, so we only managed to raise ~1k.
