COVID-19 Survey Results: How Advancement Teams are Responding

Holman Gao | 5 min read

Survey results last updated March 18th, 2020, 6:00pm EDT. To support the education advancement community, BoostMySchool collaborated with ThankView and Wavelength to distribute an anonymized survey for schools to gain insight into how their peers are handling upcoming giving initiatives and events during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you haven’t yet filled it out, we ask if you would be willing to fill out this short survey – takes only 2 minutes to complete – to share insight into what your school is doing.

Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts! We have a diverse group of over a hundred responses from institutions like Villanova University, Landon School, and Collegiate School. Your input will help other schools navigate this unforeseen situation.
