The world of special events in advancement is quickly changing due to COVID-19. What are the best practices? With so much to sift through and figure out, we take the time to talk through what we are seeing and share experiences about what has worked, and what hasn’t. Join us and walk away feeling more confident that you can still dream it, wish it, and do it with regards to your school’s next special event.

Jim Scholl serves as ACAAP’s Vice President. Jim is the Leadership Gift Officer at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA and is also a 2003 graduate of the school. In Jim’s role as Leadership Gift Officer, he manages an annual fund that seeks to raise $1.6 million. Inclusive of this effort is the planning and implantation of key fundraising programs, which include the school’s annual Day of Giving Back, March Madness Alumni Giving Challenge, Senior Parent Gift Program, Senior Student Gift Program, and Reunion Gift Programs. Jim also oversaw this past fall’s annual golf classic, the first tournament ever run during a global pandemic. Even with the many restrictions due to COVID-19, the tournament raised a new record amount, all to support the school’s student scholarship fund.
