Bree Cahill is the executive director of SVP Sacramento. In this role, she connects business leaders with nonprofits, securing unrestricted funding and in-kind support for educationally-focused organizations in the region. In 2015, under Cahill’s leadership, SVP launched the first nonprofit pitch event “SVP Fast Pitch,” which has now led to over $650,000 in funding donated to local nonprofits. She is a former Teach for America Corp member, and a graduate of the Nehemiah Emerging Leaders Program.
