Empathy as a Fundraising Strategy

IssueLab, a service of the Foundation Center, provides free access to thousands of case studies, evaluations, white papers, and issue briefs produced by the social sector.


Empathy is at the heart of SVPY. Simone Wren, SVPY advisor explains, “we spend an entire day with the SVPP executive director just discussing the importance of early childhood education and development.


We do thought experiments about what it would have been like to not be ready for kindergarten and we all shared stories about our early experiences in education.”
