Congratulations TTCF Chief Operating Officer, Sache Cantu

TTCF is pleased to announce the promotion of Sache Cantu from Director of Impact Investing and Special Projects to Chief Operating Officer! 

Sache started with TTCF in 2020 as a volunteer for Mountain Housing Council. The Grass Valley native and seasoned professional with two-plus decades of experience facilitating cross-sector partnerships and programs for social impact had just moved back to California and was looking for ways to be more involved with the community—which naturally led her to TTCF. 

Prior to joining TTCF, Sache served as VP, Community Giving Manager for the US arm of BBVA, where she led charitable contributions programs and initiatives. Connecting resources to community-based opportunities has been central to her work as a grantmaker and in the nonprofit sector where she has addressed issues ranging from economic development to education. 

Sache holds a BA from UT Austin and an MPA from George Washington University with a concentration in Budgeting and Public Finance; she is the first member of her family to attend college and also earn a secondary degree. She adores her cat, ‘Big Jules’; is a 4X auntie; and enjoys trail running or exploring the local park system. 

For us to be effective in the community, as collaborative partners and as grantmakers, we need systems and processes that reflect our business model and our values. I’m excited that taking on the COO role will include the responsibility to ensure that our operations achieve both. When I think about TTCF and the future, I cannot help but also look to our past. The commitment to continuously learn and the willingness to remain flexible in search of new solutions is the hallmark of TTCF. It is what drew me to the team and I look forward to seeing more of it in the days to come.
