Fundraiser plugin breaks admin back end

Fatal error: Call to a member function add_cap() on null in /home/msbmozaicadmin/public_html/wp-content/plugins/fundraising/fundraiser.php on line 417
The front end displays fine, it is the backend that is broken.
edit: I only assume the fundraiser plugin is crashing the dashboard because of the error above.
