Kate Schaffer

Kate brings to MSI nearly 20 years of fundraising experience and a passion for reproductive justice.

Kate most recently led foundation fundraising efforts at Population Services International. Prior to PSI, she spent time raising money (and playing four square!) at Playworks, a national nonprofit that focuses on keeping kids active and building social-emotional skills through play. Kate’s passion for global SRHR really blossomed early in her career at Pathfinder International, where she led the foundation fundraising team, and at Ibis Reproductive Health, where she learned the importance of high-quality, impactful research for improving equitable access to sexual and reproductive health care.

Kate has BA in History from Columbia University, and an MSc. in Policy Studies from the University of Edinburgh. She lives with her family in the Bay Area.
