The Special Projects Advisory Committee (SPAC) is tasked to make recommendations to the Executive committee regarding the use of invested Chapter funds derived from some of the National Conventions held in Boston. Special projects are considered to augment the normal Chapter activities. Grants can be made to anyone in the USA in the categories of: public concerts, radio broadcasts, research, publications, recordings, competitions, commissions, educational projects, and organ music libraries. Since its inception in 1977 with about $80,000 from the 1976 Convention, more than $185,000 has been granted to various groups and endeavors using the income from the endowment.
The five SPAC members this year are: Margaret Angelini (2023) , Robert Barney (2024), Louise Mundinger (2025), and Jack Russell (2026), Jeremy Bruns (2027)
